Taj Mahal . . . the way I look at it .

The Taj Mahal is the epitome of Mughal art and one of the most famous buildings in the world. There have been few serious studies of it and no full analysis of its architecture and meaning. Ebba Koch, an important scholar, has been permitted to take measurements of the complex and has been working on the palaces and gardens of Shah Jahan for thirty years and on the Taj Mahal itself—the tomb of the emperor’s wife, Mumtaz Mahal—for a decade.
