This is my FAVORITE great wonder of the world. The Taj is so perfectly beautiful. A monument to true and undying love. (Can you tell that I'm a romantic?) One of the best things to do is to go into the main hall with a flashlight. If you find a lotus flower image in the marble walls, shine your flashlight on it and see it glow. It looks alive. If you move the flashlight in a circle, it looks like the lotus is blooming. Very beautiful! My guide showed me all of the little tricks and optical secrets of the Taj...it's well worth it to get a guide if you can.
