The Taj Mahal Is a Monument of Love and Sorrow

Marilyn JonesAlthough the sun is setting and it is too late to visit the Taj Mahal, we are excited to reach our hotel in Agra, India, where every room faces this Wonder of the World. The Oberoi Amarvilas is designed to give every guest the same view whether they are in their guest room, the dining room or another public space.

Stepping out onto the balcony, I see the monument built by Shah Jahan and dedicated to his wife, Mumtaz Mahal, who died giving birth to the couple’s 14th child. I remind myself to be in the moment; this is a once in a lifetime event.

But, until we can visit this monument of love, Norma and I settle in to enjoy this beautiful hotel. Each Oberoi hotel blends itself into its surroundings. Here, rolling lawns and water elements frame the view of the Taj Mahal.
