Picture of the Day – 5th December, Taj Mahal, Agra

The Taj Mahal is one of the most beautiful buildings in the world. It is a white marble mausoleum, built in Agra in the 17th century by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. The building is an outstanding piece of Muslim art in India.

We felt so lucky to be able to spend an afternoon just admiring it.

    Really wonderful. When you walk away from it and turn back to look at the building from about a hundred meters, it seems it is floating above the ground.
