Photographer's Note

The Taj Mahal is considered the finest example of Mughal architecture, a style that combines elements from Persian, Indian, and Islamic architectural styles.

In 1983, the Taj Mahal became a UNESCO World Heritage Site and was cited as "the jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world's heritage."

Here is the marble dome that surmounts the tomb, the most spectacular feature of Taj, because of its shape, the dome is often called an "onion dome" or amrud.

The top is decorated with a lotus design, which also serves to accentuate its height. The shape of the dome is emphasised by four smaller domed chattris (kiosks) placed at its corners, which replicate the onion shape of the main dome.

The photo was taken at sunset, when the Taj Mahal drapes itself in a beautiful breathtaking pearly pink shade.
