Taj Mahal With the River Jamuna behind where I picked the biggest water melon in my life. Sadly the stone at the Taj is turning yellow due to sulphur dioxides emissions emitted from an oil refinery close by. The best time to see this Islamic Architecture is by moonlight it is a wonderment to the eye.
