Built in the 1600’s for the deceased wife of Emperor Shah Jahan, the Taj Mahal is easily one of the most beautiful buildings we have seen. And since the Emperor’s description sounds better than anything I could possibly write, I will leave you with that as well as the pictures of our visit.
Should guilty seek asylum here,
Like one pardoned, he becomes free from sin.
Should a sinner make his way to this mansion,
All his past sins are to be washed away.
The sight of this mansion creates sorrowing sighs;
And the sun and the moon shed tears from their eyes.
In this world this edifice has been made;
To display thereby the creator’s glory.
