India, Agra, Taj Mahal, "Crown of Palaces", the white marble mausoleum, a jewel of Muslim art & Mughal architecture in India, located in the federal state of Uttar Pradesh. Built between 1632 & completed approximately 1653 by Mughal emperor “Shah Jahan” in memory of his main wife Mumtaz Mahal, “Arjumand Bano Begum”, who passed away in 1631. The mausoleum is 58 mtr high & 56 mtr wide, placed on a 100mtr by 100mtr square marble platform in a 18 hectare garden.

The photo was taken from the banks of the Yamuna River which is dividing the garden at the back of the Taj Mahal, the snap shot symbolize still today’s society,...excessive luxury & the real life of the common Indian population.
