This model will require more than one sitting to build it. We advise to pause between different stages as you work, especially when you come to gluing. The white glue softens the paper and it may lead to misshapen parts if you do not allow them to dry well before proceeding further with assembling. Click here to watch our paper model building tips.

A FEW LINES ABOUT THIS LANDMARK

The Taj Mahal ("crown of palaces" in Arabic), a white marble mausoleum located on the southern bank of the Yamuna River in the Indian city of Agra, was commissioned in 1632 by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan to house the tomb of his favourite wife of three, Mumtaz Mahal. It is one of the world’s most celebrated structures and a symbol of India’s rich architectural history.
