Τhe jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world. An immense mausoleum of white marble that was built in Agra between 1632 and 1648 by the order of the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his third and favourite wife. A labour of love…

    Like Alex said, it is very spectacular. I’ve been there too and I know how it is tough to get the right angle AND the spot clear enough to shoot a photo without thousands of tourists under the arch… Very well done! Very good shot!

  • You ’ve got it right Thierry, thanks a lot!
