Taj Mahal, January 1977

I had the enormous privilege of visiting India in 1976 and 1977, and in January 1977 went to Agra, from where I traveled the short distance to the Taj Mahal on the banks of the Yamuna River.  It was a wonderful experience, and I particularly remembered the fine beauty of all the inlaid stone.  Digitizing some of my slides, now almost 40 years afterwards, I just thought that it would be nice to share these here, so that others could enjoy the calmness and serenity of this beautiful mausoleum commissioned in 1632 by Shah Jahan to house the tomb of his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal.
