One thing we have realized, noticed, admired and struggled with is the extreme contrasts in India. While the country is crazy and over stimulating, there are parts that are serene and extremely beautiful… the Taj Mahal.

The Taj Mahal is often considered the jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces. In 1983, the Taj Mahal became a UNESCO World Heritage Site. When we entered the gates, life immediately slowed and there was a sense of calmness that was so very different than everything else we have experienced in India.

Needless to say, this was a once in a lifetime bucket-list experience – or twice for James! We hope you enjoy the pictures.
