The Taj in the Moonlight

They say Shah Jahan was grief-stricken on the death of his second wife Mumtaj Mahal at the age of 39. The tomb in marble he built for her on the banks of the Jamuna is counted among the wonders of the world.
Fodor's Guide to India advises its readers to see the Taj Mahal in moonlight or at the break of dawn. But at whatever time of the day or night you see the Taj, it's beautiful. Edward Lear, celebrated author and illustrator who visited India in 1873, wrote in his diary: "Henceforth, let the inhabitants of the world be divided into two classes them as has seen the Taj Mahal and them as hasn't." Most people who have seen the Taj would agree with him.
