taj at sunset

Posted by sawsengee (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) on 17 June 2013 in Architecture and Portfolio.

the golden sunset rays bathing the Taj Mahal with framed view from the mosque on the western axis. The silhouette of the lady is reminiscent of the legendary purpose of the Taj.....the eternal resting place of Mumtaz Mahal, the beloved wife of the emperor Shah Jahan & the emperor himself.
