In response to Jakesprinter’s Sunday post with the theme of “solid” I couldn’t think of anything more solidly built and beautiful than India’s beloved Taj Mahal. A true testament of beauty, labor and love, this breathtaking structure was built in record time taking only twenty years to build using spectacular white marble and thousands of workers and artisans. It is one of the most impressive masterpieces in the world. Although the journey there was backbreaking and treacherously awful, when we finally arrived and I saw the Taj Mahal for the first time, it took my breathe away. He must have really loved his wife to build such an amazing testament of love.

Great work for this week theme my friend i really love it 🙂
Oooh! Gorgeous photo!
This is something I would really love to see. What a fabulous photo!
Thanks! The journey there was crazy. It is not far from Dehli (less than two hour drive) but due to the insane traffic (you’ve got all sorts of crazy transportation going on….camels pulling three-lane wide loads, cows hanging out, cars packed with 20 people, etc) it took 5 hours there and 6 hours back!!!! There is a train ride there but looking back, the drive there was more meaningful as what I saw in that amount of time was amazing. Wow. India is quite a place! 🙂
Wonderful image that really depicts the true essence of SOLID! So nice to meet you through Jake’s Sunday Post. 🙂
Thank you! I’m glad you enjoyed the photo! I just wrote another entry on my main blog thirdeyemom. Check it out! 🙂
I will. 🙂

Taj Mahal is truly a symbol of beauty, labor and love. Beautiful image that makes all of us want to dream.
Thanks! It sure was sensationally beautiful to see it in person. There was something about it that just took my breath away. So romantic and so magical.
Wow! I can’t imagine standing in front of this majestic building …
Yes it was really unbelievable but more so after the journey getting there as it was crazy and took 5 hours to go about 120miles with some crazy sights along the way…
For 120 miles, Texans probably can make it in less than 90 minutes.
I bet you’re right but you probably don’t have cows, camels and what-have-yous interfering with the “pedal to the metal”!
That’s so crazy…
This is an amazing building! Good choice!
Thanks! It was breath-taking to finally see it in person. Wow…..
