First view of Taj Mahal

Taj Mahal, Agra, India

The fame of this monument of love is widespread. One of the 7 wonders (manmade) of the world this marble mausoleum at Agra, India is a universally admired architectural masterpiece.

Built by Moghul emperor Shah Jahan in loving memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal, this beautiful marble structure stands on the banks of river Yamuna. The entire structure showcases the most intricate, beautiful & skilled artwork; exquisitely inlaid & decorated with the finest precious/semi precious stones brought in from the various parts of India & the world. Beautiful shrubs, decorative flowering plants & well manicured trees give a splendid appearance to the whole landscape.

On a full moon night under the star-lit sky the pure white marble of Taj shimmers in the silver moonlight. The view of its perfect symmetrical reflection in the water channel in the garden is simply breath taking. Too bad I did not get to witness this mind boggling view of the Taj Mahal under the night sky 😦
