About the Book
Subhadra Sen Gupta has captured in this book the magnificence and grandeur of one of the eight wonders of the world - the Taj Mahal. The character of the city has been briefly discussed for its rich cultural heritage, landscape, climate, history and architecture. From Babur, the founder of the Mughal dynasty in India, to the reigns of his grandson, Akbar, and the two monarchs who followed, Jahangir and Shah Jahan, this book describes the zenith of Agra's splendour. The exquisite photographs in this book capture the many moods of this fabulous mausoleum built in sumptuous marble. It truly is a book to treasure that pays a lyrical tribute to the greatest city of the Mughals.
