Taj Mahal Photos – Not a Cliched one either!
The Taj Mahal is probably the most famous place in India, and one of the most recognisable landmarks in the entire world. Millions visit the place to take a tonne of Taj Mahal Photos for their computer wallpaper or for slideshows when they get home. But today, I’ve got a very ironic photo supplied by Vishnu from Thinking Particle which is a travel blog about destinations in India. You can follow him on Facebook.
Most people know that the Taj Mahal is a dedicated mausoleum. In 1631, Shah Jahan, the emperor of the Mughal empire, was was grief-stricken when his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal, died during the birth of their 14th child(!). He then ordered the construction of the Taj Mahal which began in 1632, which more or less is a grand structure that illustrate the love story of Shan Jahan and his wife.
Anyway, hundreds of years later, Vishnu writes ‘I have a funny photograph of a quotation in the backdrop of Taj Mahal but the quotation is written in Hindi….. that quotation is quite funny indeed…. (scroll down below). Here is that photograph…’
The quotation in English means “public display of affection are an offence in the garden”. Funnily enough, you can see Taj Mahal (ironically, which is a symbol of love) in the backdrop…
A picture is really worth more than a thousand words! I love ironic photos like this!
I don’t this photo is appearing on any official tourist brochures any time soon! But I think they should include this in a Taj Mahal Photos gallery just for a little bit of fun!
