Trump Taj Mahal

The Trump Taj Mahal hotel and casino resort is one of the top attractions of North America’s second capital of gambling: Atlantic City, New Jersey. Indeed, it is one of the major tourist attractions on the entire Eastern Seaboard.

The Trump Taj Mahal can be found at 1 000 Boardwalk Avenue, in the busy casino sector on the shoreline of Atlantic City.

When it was opened in 1990, this majestic resort had cost a whopping $1 billion to build, and has since made a name for itself as a very popular tourist destination thanks to its size, famous name and regal design.

The aim of the Trump Taj Mahal is to create a sense of royalty, which explains the purple carpeting, white marble, gold-plated fixtures and an incredible seven chandeliers in reception alone!

The Original Taj Mahal

The Taj Mahal is a mausoleum in Agra, India, that has become symbolic of artistic architecture and as a monument to love.

The Taj Mahal was built under Mughal Emperor, Shah Jahan, in memory of his favourite wife, Mumtaz Mahal, and the complex of symmetric structures – dominated by the white domed marble and tile mausoleum – was completed around 1648.

In 1983 it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, being described as “The jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world’s heritage.” It is seen as the finest example of Mughal architecture, which combined elements of Persian, Turkish, Indian and Islamic styles.

This beauty and heritage has been revamped in the Trump Taj Mahal hotel and casino resort, where you can begin to build your own kingdom!
