Yes, there are many words or sentances which can describe this place. But none of it can give the feeling of visiting the place. Specially when you are standing in the que for 2-5 hours.
So after completing the que and security checks you reach at one of the gates but you can still not see the great Taj-Mahal. But wait! the gate is also worth to have a view or taking photos.
Actually the view of Taj-Mahal through the gate is really beautiful. And after passing through the gate its even more mesmerizing.
Here is the view of Taj-Mahal after crossing the gate. As you can see in the photo there is a fountain with small water reserve at the center surrounded by the trees. Taj-Mahal is made of ivorish marble which shines in the sunlight. It’s having a mahal (palace) in the centre which is holding tomb of the mumtaz. There are four towers at each corner of the palace. Each and every wall of Taj-Mahal is a piece of art having carvings of various patterns on the marbles.
