Photo of the Week: The Taj Mahal

Yoga in Mehtab Bagh Garden Outside the Taj Mahal

At 5:45 am Jim and I took a taxi from our hotel on the east side of the Taj Mahal in Agra, India to Mehtab Bagh, a beautifully manicured garden across the river from the Taj.

We watched the early morning sun reflect off the impressive white marble structure and then made our way to the Mausoleum– a symbol of Shah Jahan’s (the fifth Mughal emperor’s) love for his favorite wife that took him 22 years to complete.

    Dear Rachel,

    Love your photo in front of the Taj Mahal! I am a small tour operator and I’m offering a yoga trip in India in 2016. I wanted to ask you if I could use your photo – with attribution – on my website? You can see the page here: Right now I’m using a photo from Wikimedia, but I like yours much more!

    Just wanted to ask :-) Hope it will be possible!
