"Pietra Dura" Top 5 Page for this destination The Taj Mahal Tip by keeweechic

The Taj Mahal, Agra: 256 reviews and 621 photos


The beautiful decoration of the Taj Mahal is in part made up by a large use of pietra dura.
The Mughals believed that flowers were symbols of ?the divine realm? and so incorporated decorative patterns using various flowers such as the lily, poppy, iris, tulip and narcissus.
