Indian Marble

The Taj Mahal is a unique architectural jewel whose beauty emanates from an unrivaled purity of design, as well as from the material used for its construction, the white marble of Makrana. This small city of Rajasthan has perpetuated a marble quarrying tradition for over four hundred years and has become one of the leading centers of marble production in Asia. The mineworkers of Makrana work under conditions of extreme risk to their health and safety in order to produce this form of "white gold".
