Photographer's Note

How to describe the Taj Mahal? No amount of hyperbole will do. I'll just let my Let's Go guidebook do the talking:

"Despite all the hype and the hoopla, the sheer beauty of the place is so overwhelming that no amount of exposure can diminish it.... even the most jaded of globe-trotters often find themselves smiling in wonder as they behold the Taj."

"Emblazoned across the signs of a million-and-one restaurants, T-shirts, and biscuit tins the world over, this marble prima donna, unofficially crowned by her ardent fans as 'the most beautiful building in the world', remains India's ultimate must-see."

This was the absolute highlight of our 3 weeks in India.

This picture was taken at 8:30 AM, where the crowds are much thinner. We were very lucky that the smog was a little thinner that day.

All comments appreciated!
