Taj Mahal means "Crown Palace" and is in fact the most beautiful tomb in the world. The marble wonder is the largest and the most extravagant mausoleum built for the sake of love by a person. The grandeur & glory of Taj has reached every corner of the world. This timeless piece of art has been the inspiration for many artists and architects, ever since its creation. Its very difficult to adequately convey the legend in a picture or write in a piece of paper.The dome in white marble is set against the plain across the river and it is this background that changes the view of the marble structure. The background of water works its magic of colours through their reflection. The colours change at different time of the day and during different seasons. The Taj sparkles like a jewel in moonlight when the semi-precious stones infixed into the white marble structure on the main mausoleum catch the glow of the moon. The Taj is pinkish in the morning, milky white in the evening and golden when the moon shines.
