“The Taj Mahal rises above the banks of the river like a solitary tear suspended on the cheek of time.” ― Rabindranath Tagore
Sorrow was never so beautiful. India’s Taj Mahal, fashioned from marble and heartbreak, was built by Mogul emperor Shah Jahan as a tomb for his beloved consort, Empress Mumtaz Mahal, who died in childbirth.
There is no better way to experience Taj other than a Moonlight tour. It is for lovers, poets, writers and people who value richness of emotions. Plan this tour with the one you love and we promise that you will cherish those memories forever.
