It costed 32 million rupees at that time, which amounts to about 60 Billion Rupees in today’s value.

The Taj Mahal was constructed using materials from all over India and Asia. Over 1,000 elephants were used to transport building materials during the construction. The translucent white marble was brought from Rajasthan, the jasper from Punjab and the jade and crystal from China. The turquoise was from Tibet and the Lapis lazuli from Afghanistan, while the sapphire came from Sri Lanka and the carnelian from Arabia. In all, twenty-eight types of precious and semi-precious stones were inlaid into the white marble.

It is understood that the building expense of Taj Mahal put an enormous strain on the Mughal Treasury, and resulted in a coupe for power in which Emperor Shaha Jehan was deposed by his son Aurangzeb. Shah Jehan spent last of his 8 years of life imprisoned in the Red Fort, about 1 Km away from Taj Mahal. In his failing eye sight, he spent the rest of his days gazing at Taj Mahal through mirrors.
