View of the Taj Mahal

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by R. K. Gabriel

This was viewing the Taj Mahal through a decorative stone fence at the Red Fort. I loved all the patterns found throughout the Red Fort, and found it melancholy that Shah Jahan was imprisoned here by his own son after creating such a magnificent monument.

Location: Red Fort, Agra, India
