Easy How to Draw the Taj Mahal Tutorial and Taj Mahal Coloring Pa

Learn how to draw the Taj Mahal with the help of some grid paper. It makes all those symmetrical straight lines so much easier to do!

Drawing of Taj Mahal

The Taj Mahal is considered one of the most beautiful buildings in the world. Located in the city of Agra, a ruler named Shah Jahan had the Taj Mahal built as a monument and tomb for his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal.

The monument is located on the bank of the Yamuna River and is surrounded by formal gardens and reflecting ponds. White marble and gemstones cover the outside of the Taj Mahal. Some 20,000 people worked on the monument, which took 22 years to build.

Drawing the Taj Mahal, in all its symmetrical beauty, gets a whole lot easier when working over light grid lines that are already on the paper. It eliminates the need for a ruler, which is can be a struggle, especially for young artists. The PDF tutorial that you can download has a grid template page included, so all teachers have to do is print one for each student.
