The Taj Mahal


28/4/09
Many people believe it to be the most perfectly proportioned building ever constructed; at 
first glance it appears to be simply white marble, but closer inspection reveals that the surface 
is inlaid with a profusion of semi-precious stones which form stylised flowers and bowers.
The tombs of Shah Jahan & Mumtaz Mahal are inside, but photography is banned.
As the light faded the colours changed.
Words fail to do it justice, only by visiting can you appreciate its exquisite beauty.
