The Taj Mahal in Photos – Part 3

My earlier two posts on the Taj Mahal – The Taj Mahal in Photos Part 1 and Part 2 have photos
of the Darwaza-i-rauza (The Great Gate), the main tomb chamber and its interiors.
This post has some photos from around the tomb complex.

One of the four minarets that frame the tomb.
These minarets were designed as working minarets to announce the call for prayer.

The Taj Mahal Mosque

View of the not-so-clean river Yamuna from the terrace.
When Taj Mahal was built, the area right across the Yamuna, facing the Taj Mahal,
was the Mehtab Bagh (Moonlight Garden).

Marble and sandstone flooring on the terrace where the tomb chamber stands

Posers, posers everywhere!
It’s fun to see the visitors trying out all the trick photography poses. 

Beyond access – a section on one side of the plinth on which the tomb chamber stands.
May be a passage leading to the actual graves.

And that’s me posing. Mandatory pose-with-the-monument click! 🙂

Hope you enjoyed the three part photo post series. Looking forward to your feedback.
