Taj Mahal!!!!

July 16, 2012 will mark the day that I WENT TO THE TAJ MAHAL!!! Definitely one of the places on my bucket list, but was never sure if I would ever get there one day. But I did!!! I don’t think there’s much to say about this wonder of the world, but I will point out one ironic point. We have been studying ahimsa and nonviolence for almost 3 weeks now and we went see the Taj Mahal which signifies an act of violence in the end. Shahjahan built the Taj for his wife Mumtaz, and after it was completed, Shahjahan had all of the workers’ hands cut off. He didn’t want them to be able to ever build anything as beautiful again. Pretty violent if you ask me. Despite this, I have to say it was pretty amazing to see. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves:
