Taj Mahal

Taj Mahal in it's all glory.
Taj Mahal was built by a mogul prince to bury his beloved wife who died from giving birth to 14 children.Every friday the Taj Mahal is closed for reparation. It took 22 years and 20 000 people to build and still there are relatives living in the area.
So every friday they repair the buildings and change this water that use to be clear and shows a mirror picture of Taj Mahal.
We were there a thursday so the water was dirty.
The minaret towers are built so they lean outwards so they will not fall into the main building if there is an earthquake.
All factories in the area are closed down due to pollution, to keep this new listed sight of world of wonders kept for years to come.An amazed trio.
