Whatever route you choose in India, all roads lead to the Taj Mahal, the Palace of the Crown of poetic Agra. Symbol of unconditional love, by the ruler Shah Jahan in honor of his beloved late wife, it is a tribute and remembrance of his deceased wife forever. It is one of the seven wonders of the modern world. A trip to India is worth it just to see the Taj Mahal, the Crown Palace located in Agra, northern India, one of the seven wonders of the modern world.

The white colour of the monument perhaps ensembles love in its purest form and its view in charming full moon nights is a ride through fairyland changing colours from the pearly pink at dawn and opalescent by moonlight. It was dedicated by mughal emperor Shahjahan in the memory of his loving wife Mumtaz, whose grave lie inside the monument. The grave lies a level below the main chamber, which contains the cenotaphs of shah jahan and mumtaz. The Persian Princess, Arjumand Banu, was his second wife and died giving birth to their fourteenth child.

The taj mahal built entirely with white translucent marble and surrounded by four rounded pillars or minarets is situated in the banks of river Yamuna. It took 22 years and 20000 workers to refurbish this monument under the principal architecture ship of Ustad Isa, whose one of his fingers were chopped so that he cannot re-create a masterpiece again, like the taj. Masons, craftsmen, sculptors, and calligraphers were brought from Persia, the Ottoman Empire, and Europe to work on this masterpiece. It was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983.

There is a small water body in front of the taj, the source of which is the river yamuna. It is surrounded by beautiful pine trees and a magnificent garden. It was used marble from all over India, Tibet turquoise, lapis lazuli and sapphires from Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, for a total of 28 kinds of precious stones.

The great dome that rises flanked by four tapering minarets is also of white marble stained, but for its location near the river, it becomes ever changing depending on the light of the different hours of the day and the seasons. The play of reflections that make you go to create the Taj Mahal always different shades of pink in the morning, white in the evening and golden when the moon shines.

The taj mahal has been invaded many times and has lost quite some shine due to this. It is believed that the cenotaph of mumtaz was covered by a blanket of embedded pearls in it, which is no longer there, as also many other precious items and jewels inside and outside of the monument.

Would you like to enjoy the full moon with the most romantic of the stories? Then Agra is for you during the Purnima or the full moon night when you can visit at night the Taj Mahal, the seal in white marble of love between the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan and Mumtaz and one of the seven wonders of the world.

The mausoleum, a tear marble stops on the cheek of time, as defined by the Indian poet Rabindranath Tagore. This palace, perhaps the most poetic of all time, is also a hymn to the geometric perfection. The shape of the square, in fact, represents the earth, combined with the spherical dome, which symbolizes the transcendent through the octagon, or the human.


Probably one of the most romantic of buildings ever built, I'd love to visit here.

An Italian Meal with my friend at Da Mauro

As I walked down the street, distracted by my thoughts and my memories, the smell from a nearby pizza shop invaded my senses and immediately my mind was transported to a recent visit to an expat friend's house. My friend, John lives in Central Park Resorts at the heart of Gurgaon. I'm not a huge fan of Gurgaon given the dusty roads, pollution, bad traffic and civic sense, but Central Park Resorts is another world in itself - an ample green environment with the usual facilities like amphitheatre, gym, spa, kids play area etc. But two things really caught my eye - the town-ship is automobile free and golf buggies are used to commute on surface. That sounds downright futuristic and something only the millionaires could afford, right? But there it was, right in front of my eyes in Gurgaon! Well, the future is really here I guess.

But what really got to me is the second thing - something situated inside the Central Park Resorts township. Read on:
