Wah TAJ !

Since childhood we have memorized that Taj Mahal  is one of the wonders of the world. Watching the magnificent monument on television, in books and newspapers , I had always wondered if it would  exhale the same exuberance when I see it with naked eye.

Filled with excitement I reached Agra.  First look at Taj and I instantly fell short of words. What a perfect blend of beauty and architecture!  Each angle and dimension was just perfect. Symmetric, beautiful and marvelous!

Taj Mahal literally means 'Crown Palace'. As known to all, it was built by the mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved third wife, Mumtaz. It is the most well preserved and architecturally beautiful tomb in the world. It was built using Red Sandstones and pristine white Marbles.

For the inlay and carvings, rare Gemstones like Gold stone, Magnet stone and Semi Precious stones like Turquoise, Onyx, Coral were used.


I was enchanted and mesmerized by its beauty. To me, it is undoubtedly an Epitome of Love!

A must must see master piece!

    I've never been to Agra, though I deeply wish to visit that place and watch the greatest monument of India.
