The Taj Mahal

by

Most of us will never visit the Taj Mahal. However, via the magic of the internet, all is not lost. Virtual Tours brings us a richly interactive online tour. Site navigation is somewhat imperfect, but maybe that is appropriate given the Taj Mahal’s construction of almost perfect beauty to serve as a mausoleum for what must have been a perfect love for a deceased wife.

You will be greeted by silence when you enter the main body of the site, but for good reason. You have the choice of either turning on background music (music note symbol on the upper-left of screen), spoken narrations, or text and pictures. Yes, they pretty well covered the bases. I suggest the spoken narrations. (Click on the image of a pointing man found to the right of the upper main panoramic image.)
