The Taj Mahal – world calls it the epitome of love, it’s grandeur is overwhelming, it has been and continues to be a muse to many a lovelorn poets and painters, this marble marvel, often described as the jewel of Muslim architecture in India, is indeed a sight to behold.

A composite ticket of Taj Mahal is available at all World Heritage Sites in India.

Inside the Taj Mahal complex – an introduction to what lies ahead.

Taj Mahal summed up on sandstone plaque

Darwaza-i-rauza (The Great Gate)
Inlaid with floral motifs and inscriptions from the holy Quran, 
Darwaza-i-rauza was also a symbolic gate –
urging visitors to leave the material world behind and enter the spiritual world or paradise
with complete surrender.

The Great Gate has a fancy gate
First glimpse of the dazzling white beyond!

And there it is! The Taj Mahal – resplendent and imposing. In fact on first full view,
it’s grandeur is so striking that all adjectives start falling short.
