Who hasn’t dreamed of seeing the Taj Mahal? Having done a little bit of Indian history in my early years at school, from the moment I learned about the Taj Mahal, I knew I had to see this place with my own eyes. Below I am sharing some of my Taj Mahal photos from my trip to Agra, India. This a building that that is said to be the world’s greatest monument to love. Commissioned by Shah Jahan, the fifth Mughal emperor to house the tomb of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal, who died during childbirth.
