The Taj is one of the wonders of the world for a reason!" Jinesh wrote.

P Suryanarayana, 73, from Bengaluru says, "When I visited Taj Mahal in 2014, I was prepared for disappointment, having just read the negative comments on the monument by Aldous Huxley and Nirad Choudhuri. Instead, I was enchanted.

"The photo, above, shows the monument with emphasis on the main structure, not showing the minars, which the two authors considered as elements which weakened the majesty of Taj Mahal."

Dheeraj Puthran, 39, from Mumbai says, "Taj Mahal is undoubtedly the most precious monument in the world.

"I visited Taj Mahal in 2016 with my family.

"We first visited the Red Fort and from there the majestic view of the Taj was just amazing. It cannot be described in words.

"When we were in Taj Mahal, the first word which we muttered were 'Oh my god, wow what a beauty'.

"We all felt that we had accomplished what we desired in life.

"I personally think that every individual in the world should visit Taj Mahal once in their life because it's the most precious symbol of love. Wah Taj, boliye janab!"
