My knowledge of the Taj Mahal is very limited. BUT, according to the book, the Taj Mahal was commissioned by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan as a shrine for his wife. Aside from the fact that it’s considered to be one of the Wonders of the World, it’s also been described as a “teardrop on the cheek of time”. How poetic right? Furthermore, it’s also viewed as a symbol of eternal love. *SIGH* And that symmetry! The OC in me is so very pleased. HAHA!
P.S.: I’ve never actually SEEN the Taj Mahal in person. My memories of it mainly consists of pictures and dioramas. HAHA! I do hope to see her in person one day though. :)
