Taj Mahal
Renowned for its architectural magnificence and aesthetic beauty, Taj is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular buildings of the world. It counts among man's proudest creations and is invariably included in the list of the world's foremost wonders.
The narration on exotic Taj Mahal is given by Mr. Alyse who visited Agra and Taj Mahal in Feburary 2003.

Stage Set - I had read and heard about Taj Mahal. I was always inclined towards visting this place but some how I was not able to do so. And one day my luck struck and I was able to see the monument in real.

I was blessed with a chance during one of my business promotions. As India gets too hot in summers, I planned my trip in spring. I thought it to be the appropriate time for promoting and exploring.

I was air-borne to New Delhi- The national capital of India. After staying in New Delhi for three days, I started my dream journey to Agra- the city which houses Taj.

O Taj!
No mirror can reflect your beauty
No camera can catch your grandeur
But look how lonely you stand
On the banks of the Yamuna river!

The Poem of love!
The eternal monument of Love, Taj Mahal, enchants the saga of love lorn history that mesmerizes the beholder with every time of romance. The pristine whiteness and sombre design of architecture enliven the past of the Mughal Era.

While on my trip to Agra, my girlfriend asked me “ Do you love me?”, I said “ Ya, honey, I do”. “ Can you built a Taj Mahal for me” she asked. “Actually, I would love to, but for that you have to die!”. I replied mischieviously.

Jokes Apart. Believe me! It is next to impossible to make a structure like Taj. It's not just another edifice, it's an enduring symbol of human love. The postcard picture of the Taj Mahal falls short to convey the legend , the poetry and the romance. The magic that the monument beholds is something to be experienced and not told.

Love is the air!!
In fact, I was quite impressed by the Persian reflection on the architecture that infused a characterstic splendor to the imposing magic of the monument. My guide told me that the monument was built between 1651-1653. “ What 22 years? Unbelievable! ”, I exclaimed, when I came to know that it took 22 years and 20,000 men to construct the exotic Taj.

“ It had many precious and semiprecious stone inlaid in the walls” said my escort. “ But where are they?” I asked. “ Most of them have been stolen” replied my guide.

As a tribute to a beautiful woman and as a monument for enduring love, the Taj reveals its subtleties when one visits it without being in a hurry
