Taj Mahal

Replica of Taj Mahal was built in exhibition ground during Dasara 2010, posted here is an HDR image of the same.

Taj Mahal is situated on the banks of river Yamuna in Agra and is one of the most recognizable and most beautiful buildings in the world, it stands out as a symbol of Eternal Love. Taj Mahal is also one of seven wonders of the world. Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan got this monument constructed in the memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal. It took 22 years for 20,000 workers to build this mesmerizing monument out of pure white marble collected from all over India and central Asia.

  30. I am so thrilled that I was able to see this incredible place. Somehow, though, I have misplaced the photographs that were taken there. I am moving next month from my home of 13 years and, in the packing, I hope these photos turn up.

    In my poetry book, published in May 2010, available on Amazon.com, I wrote a poem about the Taj Mahal!
