1. Each side of Taj Mahal was designed identically using symmetry and geometry so that no matter whatever direction you approach it, you are always awarded by the same magnificent image.

2. Though Taj Mahal features unique design, one of the most appealing features is its changing color. Hence, when the reflection of sunlight reaches the white marble of the Taj Mahal, it appears different colors at different time of a day. For instance, pink color in the morning, white during the day and golden color during moon night.

3. To protect the Taj Mahal from the potential hazards like earthquake, its four minarets were constructed at a slight slant away from the Taj Mahal. This implies that if the pillars ever start collapsing, they would fall away from the structure instead of towards it, protect it from any further hazard.
