Visit the Taj Mahal
The dusky planes of India elicit images of romance, a crushing weight of excited limbs and the chaos of a Saturday morning bazaar; colourful, contrary, bustling and loud. India has the capability to siphon the soul from your fingertips and replace it with an addictive euphoria or conversely, leave you exhausted and overwhelmed on your hotel floor.
If you’re hungry for adventure, painted by a palate of sunsets and monuments to eternal love, an Indian getaway is for you.
The Taj Mahal was conceptualised, planned and commissioned by the hopelessly devoted Emperor, Shah Jahan, to honour his third wife after she died birthing their child. He was heartbroken and desperate to connect with his beloved Mumtaz Mahal; it is said, his hair paled and turned ashen within a day or two of her death.
- Mumtaz Mahal
Very few pilgrims leave the Taj Mahal unaffected, as the hard work of over 20,000 experts and one man’s vision has provided the perfect location for proposals, declarations of love or just a quiet moment, admiring the resplendent cream domes. Once you’ve gathered your breath, journey into the grounds and be wowed by the towering obelisks, serving no other purpose but to delight the eye.
Inside, an overwhelming collection of semiprecious jewels form decorative patterns, swirling around the walls and carved flowers; beyond is the Cenotaph of Mumtaz Mahal, the lauded one, masked by an unforgettable perforated screen. Words cannot express the complexities, beauty and surprises that lay beyond the luxurious grounds; there are some place you just need to discover for yourself!
