Wah Taj!

"Not Architecture! as all others are,
But the proud passion of an Emperor's love
Wrought into living stone, which gleams and soars
With body of beauty shrining soul and thought;
         ... As when some face
Divinely fair unveils before our eyes--
Some woman beautiful unspeakably--
And the blood quickens, and the spirit leaps,
And will to worship bends the half-yielded knees,
While breath forgets to breathe. So is the Taj!"
The Taj is now a wonder (albeit by popular acclaim!). No doubt, the lines above do describe wonderfully the monumental structure that the Taj is.
