The Taj is the most beautiful monument built by the Mughals.Built entirely of white marble by Emperor Shah Jahan in the memory of his dear wife and queen Mumtaz Mahal at Agra, India.

Taj Mahal was constructed over a period of twenty-two years, employing twenty thousand workers. It was completed in 1648. It uses the principles of self-replicating geometry and a symmetry of architectural elements..

It is a symbol of eternal love..really


by the time we reached Agra, my camera batteries died
down completely! I was gutted!

this was taken using my phone-camera.
pp: increased Saturation slightly,
and added black borders, blurring the edges.

Love, 4 letters that makes the world a better place.

Namasthe Ritesh
A bit of a different point of view than usually. But as usual he is enrapturing with his beauty.

Hey Ritz,
Quelle surprise ce matin de trouver ta photo dans mes favoris... bonne année !
Remarquable cette vue seulement avec un téléphone...waow. on devine bien le jeu d'ombre sur le Taj, la luminosité qu'il renvoit est très agréable.
Bonne journée


Hello Ritz,
Nice to see you.
Hope you are doing fine :-)
Nice and different POV. Good sharpness of this famous monument.
Wish you happy new year.

Hi Ritesh! I love this perspective! It's unique! Is this the back view of the Taj? Very unique angle. I like the cinematic effect. Very good tones and colors.
