India; Agra, Bandhavgarh, Pench and Delhi, 2011: Pictures of the Taj Mahal in 2011
Taking pictures of the Taj Mahal was great. I managed to find a guide who showed me the best places to get photos of the Taj Mahal as the sun was rising.
The Taj Mahal, meaning "beauty beyond comparison" was built by Shah Jahan in honor of his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal. Mumtaz died of sepsis while giving birth to their 14th child. On her death bed she asked that Shah didn't re-marry. After being depressed for two years, Shah Jahan decided to build the most beautiful structure ever made in her honor. In 1632, 20,000 workers began construction of the Taj Mahal and the main building was finished in 1648.
The Taj Maha is located in Agra, India. It is deservedly the pride of India and was one of the highlights of my visit. See my blog for more information on the Taj Mahal and events of that day.
