This, my friends, was my first view of the Taj in all its glory. Words cannot describe how emotional I felt at this moment. The Taj is bigger than you expect, whiter than you expect, and far, far more pristine-looking than you expect — as if they just finished the thing yesterday. It commands your attention and stirs your soul. I’ve never seen a human edifice to match it. I honestly believe that if you have the means, you owe it to yourself to go see this thing before you die. Seriously.
