The Taj Mahal

It is one of the seven wonders of the world and rightfully so. She stands so beautiful and majestic all dressed in white in the bright Indian sun. I fell in love with her the moment I first saw her through the gate.

 

I also have a video of India on my youtube channel right here.

Its a funny thing. I went to India specifically to see the Taj Mahal and contemplate finding love in my life. True. And as I passed through the south gate and glanced upon her I fell in love with her. Isn't that a wonderful thing? A man can and does sometimes fall in love with a woman upon first glance.

 

The Taj and the bird. Birds have always been a bit of a portent for me. My life is peppered with various messages from them. - Here is another

That's the Taj Mahal in the background.

 

So while contemplating her I was walking around the grounds.

 

I found an earring on the ground. A single earring. I don't know if it means anything but it sure does feel like a symbol... a glass slipper of sorts.

 

 

 

Taj Mahal

Built between 1632 and 1643 by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in honor of his deceased wife Mumtaz Mahal, the Taj Mahal is unquestionably the most renowned mausoleum in the world. Now this legendary monument to love can be seen as no visitor to the site has ever viewed it. On the pages of this exquisitely illustrated volume, the Taj Mahal is revealed detail by detail. Starting inside the mausoleum, a sequence of closeups show the semiprecious stones, inlaid in white marble, that form the interior's Koranic calligraphy and floral patterns. The next sequence of images presents the octogonal plan of the structure, emphasizing both its perfect symmetry and its subtle variations. The final sequence is devoted to the decorative patterns carved in the walls of the mosque and entrance gate. In addition, four lavish fold-out photographs show the entire Taj Mahal complex from different perspectives.

In their informative texts, authors Amina Okada and M.C. Joshi provide historical and architectural analyses of the Taj Mahal. Quotations from the Koran and from the journals of travelers as diverse as Jean-Bapiste Tavernier, Pierre Loti, and Aldous Huxley complete a breathtaking tribute.
