Taj Mahal, Agra, India :

It was built by Shah Jahan (1592–1666) in memory of his wife. Due to its unique architectural design, it is considered as one of the most important tourist attractions in the world. Next to Taj Mahal, Shah Jahan built a mosque which is part of the Taj Mahal complex. Engraved on Taj Mahal walls, there are full chapters " Surahs" from the Quran.

Please note that Islamic teachings prohibit building structures over graves. A tomb is a structure above ground, and a grave is the hole below ground. According to the teachings of Prophet Muhammad, the tomb should not be more than one "shibr" i.e. about 20 cm above the ground. After putting the body in the grave, the excavated sand is collected and packed over the grave in a way that looks like a  camel hump over the grave.

In addition, Prophet Muhammad recommended people visit cemeteries to remember the fact that every living creature will die and will return to his or her Lord. It is God only to be glorified, exalted and worshiped not human beings
