The Taj Mahal

Or as Tanuja said, “So? Some man, made a monument to the woman he loved. So what?”

The rest of us were suitably awed.

As the sun rose and early morning mist dissapated, the less sanguine amongst us were struck by one of the world’s most beautiful memorials to love.

For me, the wonder on an “uninitiated” fellow traveller’s face makes every visit to the Taj special. The Taj Mahal architect, Chota Mimar, conceptualised the Shah Jehan’s vision and brought it to life.

Sustained by the Taj’s beauty, we took tonga rides back to a most excellent breakfast at the hotel.
