This handcrafted mirror mimics the shapes of the famous Taj Mahal, a structure regarded by many as the best example of Mughal architecture and a symbol of India's rich history. The Taj Mahal is a marble mausoleum on the south bank of the Yamuna River in the Indian city of Agra. It was commissioned in 1632 by the Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan (reigned from 1628 to 1658), to house the tomb of his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. The construction project employed roughly 20,000 artisans under the guidance of a board of architects led by the court architect to the emperor, Ustad Ahmad Lahauri. Today, it attracts 7–8 million visitors a year.
