This is Taj Mahal in Agra near New Delhi, India, the mausoleum of Shah Jahqan whose wife is also bureied in this building. Shah Jahan ordered the construction of this splendid temple to respect his lovely wife. This is why I call it the Temple of Love. The building was designed and constructed by then Iranian architects. The POV is seen from Agra Fort. The original photo has been taken as negative. The print has been scanned and blured.

I have never seen so wonderful view of this famous buildings. It looks like painting in oil! Good decision. But the effect did some carelessly. Line of blur is very evident. IMHO

Wow this is fantastic! I've seen hundreds of pictures of Taj Majal but your perspective is quite brilliant. I feel like you took this picture from a flying magic carpet as you soar high into the horizon to take this shot. Very surreal indeed! Thanks for sharing!
Regards! - Mike O.

Hello Ali, I really love this shot, was it taken from the Agra Fort? I enjoy how the Taj subtly protrudes from the haze, very atmospheric!
Thank you, Alice

Seen through the veil of air, there is a dreamy atmosphere in this photo of the Taj Mahal. I like it very much. I hope it gains the attention that it deserves. In precisely the opposite direction, little obscuring veil, I posted a photo of The Temple of Love two years ago when I visited the remarkable building. I did not know until I read your note, however, that it was Persian Architects who designed the building.
(I am going to write directly to you with a favor.)
