Khuranic Verses carved in marble are supposed to converge at the top when viewed from the floor, they don't, they look uniform bottom to top. Unique craftsmanship.

    hi: amazing imagery as per usual. your photos are out of this world ... or to put it another way, so in this world i actually feel i'm there

    quite an achievement as i don't feel that all that much with photos these days you capture every shifting texture and the essence and light so well ... amazing

    I've never seen closeup details of this monument, so this is great. I like the guy lying there, hope he is ok.

    Hai Rauf,
    The Photography is just amazing,but i always liked you photos on nature,like the ones from top slip and silent valley and why is that you have limited yourself to so little a comment? Write more like the one about the train journey........that's my favourite.

    Marie, Thanks for your visit. 'Daylight Again' is my active blog. You have lovely pictures on your page too.

    Ruth, yes the man was ok, he was a part of Japanese group, Japanese or Koreans. i had taken pictures of the interiors on slides last time, now cameras are not allowed inside. You can carry the camera but can't take pictures. Very silly.

    the photos don't give much idea of how huge it is? it looks bloody enormous to me!!

     
  • 5:40 AM, Blogger Gledwood

    so how big actually IS it??!

    Gledwood, Size is not the only factor. Anything of this madnitude cannot be good looking. But Taj is
    ten times bigger than what i imagined and yet stunningly beautiful

    Rauf,
    These are beautiful photos of the Taj. I was there last March. It is such an intriguing structure. Looking at your pictures takes me back to that day.
