17 years and 4 million rupees ( when gold costed 15 rupees for a tola=11gms), The Taj Mahal - a king's symbol of his love for his wife. When Shahjahan built this wonder, he wanted to create heaven on earth.
Legend has it that he cut off the thumbs of all artisans who worked so that they do not recreate the Taj ever.
Taj, perfect as it can ever get is truly awe inspiring and we were lost in another world.
