As I was growing up in India I had a chance to visit the Taj Mahal. It was the most beautiful palace I had ever seen. Mughal Empire, Shah Jahan constructed it for his deceased wife Mumtaz Mahal. I was walking through the tomb which is the central focus of the palace. It is fully made up of white marble which stands on a square plinth and consists of a symmetrical building with an iwan. The basic elements used in origin are persian. It's exterior decorations are among the finest in Mughal architecture. The ninety-nine names of God are found as calligraphic inscriptions on the sides of the actual tomb of palace. There is a familiar tale that Shah Jahan had the right hand of the chief mason cut off so that the masterpiece could never be recreated.

The Inca are widely known for their fine masonry. Inca stonework designs are very intricate and they look like a giant jigsaw puzzle. The stones didn't require anything to keep them together because the fit was so perfect that it kept everything in its place. We can tell their technique was very efficient because their works are still standing. How cool are these walls and how might they have been able to stack up these enormous stones?
