The minarets were now stark against the setting sun .
Like all great buildings, there is a story behind it.
And it cannot get any more romantic than the Taj Mahal.
There is a broad circular gallery all round the building.
There are many beautiful and worth seeing historical places in India. The four minarets stood as watch men at each of the main building.
Shah Jahan was the most charismatic and cultured of the Moghuls.
He spent vast revenues on building projects all over northern India.
And when his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal, died, he was so devastated that his beard turned white overnight.
He set out to create an unsurpassed eternal monument to her memory, and construction commenced in 1632.
Taj Mahal Out of many places I visited all around the world, the place I like the most is the beautiful city of Agra. When we talk about Agra one image that comes in mind is Taj Mahal. We had chosen our visit carefully--the sun was setting and the light that washed over the Taj was golden in color.
And I also visited Agra Fort, Fatehpur Sikri, and Buland Darwazaand. Besides Taj Mahal, Agra is famous for handicrafts, leather and fine arts. The architectural grace and symmetry of the Taj Mahal just takes your breath away.
