Taj Mahal: monument of love and loss
The white mausoleum Taj Mahal, built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal.
Pollution has stained the white marbles.
And on foggy mornings the monument acquires a sinister, darker avatar. After all it is a tomb. It is about death and losing someone.
Miniatures of the Taj Mahal are sold on the streets of Agra. Tourists like them, but some people believe the replicas should not be kept in the living room—many don't prefer a grave for decoration.
