Approaching Taj Mahal

by Agnes Felber January. 27, 2013 3211 views

A long way in…

The Great Gate (Darwaza-i-rauza) on the South side …

The first glimpse through the Great Gate in seriously big crowds…

What everybody should know about the place. [en.wikipedia.org]

My feelings? I was in awe, almost in tears, and had to pinch myself several times, just to believe that I was really ythere…

So refined, so elegant, so very harmonious!

The beauty of it comes from the shape, mass and proportions more than anything else, it seemed to me.

Had to include the obligatory touristy shot, just so I know I was not dreaming the whole thing…

Rabindranath Tagore, the poet who wrote our National Anthem, described Taj Mahal as ,"a teardrop in the cheek of time". It took 22 years to build this most beautiful monument of love. But a controversy is raising whether if was not a waste of public funds by Shahjehan. What say you?
