Royal Treat: The Taj Mahal


One of the seven wonders of the World. The pride of India. The Taj Mahal.
This beautiful white historical monument regally stands high and bright—since 1648 (i.e. 360+ years passed by now).
Best materials from around the world were imported. Best artisans were brought. Around 20 years of construction…
History says that a thousand elephants also helped building this massive tomb. Imagine a large herd of elephants to
help a demolition construction site!

Built by Emperor of India, His Imperial Majesty Shah Jahan, the Taj Mahal is a pinnacle of Mughal Architecture.
It is a jewel of Muslim art in India. The monument is perfected in art—especially symmetric engineering,
calligraphy and classic Islamic art & architecture. I’m sure, those every white marble bricks would certainly
have stories of time embedded in them! Who knows, maybe the stones secretly tell them to the flirting air
above the river Yamuna, flowing just behind.

My portrayal of this memorial has varied shades… Have a look:
