  Behold the Taj Mahal
by Nprawira

The pictures we see of Taj Mahal seem to belittle the structure since they tend to be taken from afar to capture the magnificent lawns and lotus pool infront of it and often without people around it to give a sense of perspective. But seeing with your own eyes truly show how gigantic Taj Mahal is. The costs to build it is a stuff of legend and the audacious grandeur of craftsmanship brought out the best of Islamic art. Before being too overwhelmed by the sight, remember that there are a lot of restrictions to what you can bring into the area. As a general rule, cameras are allowed but you can't take pictures inside the mausoleum. For everything else, just don't bring it with you lest you have to store it at the ticket office.
