India by itself is already a magical journey but to get to the Taj Mahal is necessary to understand some of the mysteries that make these people special, to penetrate the heart of India is to transcend.
The Taj Mahal is not just a lush construction, it is a beautiful love story and that is what interests me. Looking at the Taj we go back in time for a moment and we can see the size of the love that one man felt for his special woman.
The site is very well organized, but do not be surprised by the crowd that visits the tombs of the lovers every day. Such as his strength and desire to build a mausoleum in these proportions to perpetuate his love, so much physical energy and material resources were needed to carry out his work.
All built in white marble with details in colored stones, this is a mystique history. An inheritance of the Mongol empire, the great king Shah Jahan and his eternal beloved Persian Princess Mumtaz Mahal.
We can not forget there is a small museum on site – no photos allowed – but well worth visiting, because it displays information and rare objects from the history of the Taj Mahal.
— That was a great way to say I love you.
Near the Taj Mahal be sure to visit the Red Fort, Royal Palace and Residence of the Emperor, an amazing fort with rich details and very well preserved.
