The Taj Mahal
 
Most visitors to the Taj Mahal make the mistake of viewing it in isolation – as a beautiful white building alone – and miss out on the spectacular ensemble it is a part of. This includes the stately ancilliary buildings of the complex, the serene riverside setting, and most importantly, the deft positioning within a fabulous charbagh garden, with its reflective water channels and metaphorical trees. These elements collectively heighten the sense of symmetry as well as story-telling that the Taj is famous for, and deserve much more than a second look.
