My vector drawing (no auto trace/copy) of the Taj Mahal, it is said that it is the finest architectural and artistic achievement through perfect harmony and excellent craftsmanship in a whole range of Indo-Islamic sepulchral architecture.

No image may be reproduced, copied, edited, published, or uploaded without my permission.

Taj Mahal is a masterpiece of architectural style in conception, treatment and execution and has unique aesthetic qualities in balance, symmetry and harmonious blending of various elements.

The Taj Mahal is the story of Shah Jahan and the love of his life Mumtaz Mahal a monument to his love for her.

According to legend, Shan Jahan fell in love with his adored wife “at first sight”. She was a beautiful princess, and married him five years later. In the tradition of the times, Shan Jahan had multiple wives, but Mumtaz Mahal was his favorite. She was his companion in all things, and his most trusted advisor. It was during the birth of their fourteenth child together that Mumtaz Mahal died. Her husband was bereft, and the legends say that he locked himself in a room alone for several days.

Upon leaving this room, he embarked upon the creation of the Taj Mahal. His beloved wife would have a monument of their love erected in her honour. According to Muslim tradition, flowers were seen as coming from the realms of Paradise. Thus, Shan Jahan saw it fit to lavish the Taj Mahal in flowers, both real and designed.
