Hope you liked all the pictures. To See the other collection of some rare pictures that I had previously posted on this blog please follow the links given below.


  1. Superb pictures !! Wah Taj!!
    It is still as beautiful as ever.
    Dint you found inside the pictures? I always wish to see how is it from inside as common man is not allowed to go inside, the secrecy remains.Good collection n research anyway.

  2. These are amazing pics of one of the most recognizable monuments of the world. It looks so different in those sepia tinted old pics. Thanks for sharing Abhishek, have a happy weekend:)

  3. @Manish oh didn't thought of finding pictures of inside the complex but I am sure probability of finding them is next to impossible better next time.

    @Arti Yeah old pictures have their own charm looks and feel so different.

  4. Just visited your post again, on laptop this time,earlier it was on mobile....
    just one thing i m thinking why our government or rich ppl like ambanis,birlas,sachin etc ,dont make such monument which the coming generation remember.....????

    1. Yeah me too thinks this.
      One beautiful building that I have seen Indians made recently is Akshardham
      Can you name any architecture famous built by Indians after Mughals and Britishers, there are not many.
      I can't comprehend how Sachin can make these kinda architecture, he is not that rich to make them.

    2. He can , even any famous personality can,he he only start the idea..lot of ppl can support...what only one need is determination

    3. Can you name any Indian personality or any other person equal to his status who has made any such monument.
      These things can be done by any organization or by Govt. Individual don't do these things.

  5. wonderful pictures... across history this has been the most sought monument... really a superb place to be in india... wish to visit it someday in the future:)

    1. yes I have visited Taj once and let me assure you its the most beautiful monument I have visited till date.
