Intricacy and India go hand in hand. The 16th century white marble mausoleum, Taj Mahal leads the intricacy work not only in India but also in the world.
The white marble walls of the monument are inlaid with semiprecious stones such as jade, amethyst, lapis lazuli carnelian etc. Inlaid stones are polished and leveled to the surface of the marble walls using a technique referred as pietra dura.
Intricate depiction of flowers and vines also have been carved into the marble stone and polished to reflect in the sunlight. Below is a minute section of the intricate work of the magnificent monuement of an Persian Architect.
