Yes, Taj Mahal.
During the Mughal Empire,
the extent varied according to the prevailing political climate;
scant with Babur, extensively with Akbar, but they ruled a land
dominated by non-muslims and most buildings were built
with Hindu craftsmen and labour
under the direction of Muslim artists and architects.
The vegetative tracery, inlay work and most obviously the lotus dome
and finial of the Taj Mahal are all testament to this synthesis.
Nowadays more Indian tourists visit Taj Mahal.
Their entrance tickets are also much cheaper
than the ones for the foreign tourists.

In the evenings Taj Mahal, the real one, is not lighted.
But our hotel knows how to get the feeling.
And candle light as at the same time.
