The Ultimate Love Story… Posted November 6, 2013

One Emperor, one princess 13 babies and a tragic death. A husband so completely heartbroken by her death during childbirth that he creates the most famous memorial ever built for his beloved wife.  The story behind the creation of the Taj Mahal  is a tragically romantic love story that has been melting the hearts of listeners since it was completed in 1653.

The Taj Mahal is absolutely breathtaking and unlike most monuments it does not fail to impress when first viewed. It is actually much larger than anyone in our group expected it to be. We first viewed it at sunrise and then again from the back side across the river at sundown at the suggestion of our guide.  Made from the finest white marble and inlaid with semi-precious stones makes this a truly magnificent site that sparkles when hit by the sun’s rays and changes colour as the sun rises and sets.
