"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!"
--- Sir Edwin ArnoldThe Taj is now a wonder (albeit by popular acclaim!). No doubt, the lines above do describe wonderfully the monumental structure that the Taj is.
