The Taj Mahal, An Love Poem Written In Stone

The Taj Mahal,
A Love Poem Written In Stone

This jewel in the crown of Islamic art in India is universally regarded as one of the World Heritage masterpieces intricately woven with marble reliefs and inlaid gemstones.

Paragon of symmetry and perfection

Rarely will you find a structure that radiates so much beauty and affection as the Taj Mahal. You can stare at it for hours and become silent and emotional. Or, you can see it from a different angle and let wonderment captivate you. Can you hear the story this Mausoleum whispers to you.

About 20,000 workers helped build the structure during decades and under extreme conditions. It was to be the tomb of Mumtaz Mahal, wife of Shah Jahan. The marble was transported by elephants from far away mines. According to legend, the Mughal would have cut off the fingers of the architect so that he could never draw such an amazing structure again. According to the same sources, there would have been plans to erect a similar structure in black marble on the opposite bank of the river for the emperor himself. However he wasn't able to raise the necessary finances. Anyway, this ode to love, written in stone, leaves nobody indifferent...

“From Mehtab Bagh on the other side of the river you have the most beautiful views of the Taj Mahal, away from the crowds, and with a bit of luck enhanced by a magical sunrise”
