Taking pictures of the Taj in the midday sun is never a good idea as the reflection distorts the colours. The crowds of tourists thronging the place at this time also make it difficult to get a clear shot. But well, the Taj is the Taj and it looks marvelous even in too bright a light. It has a huge dome at the top of a white marble terrace and four minarets.
The Taj Mahal is a an example of Mughal architecture, a style that combines elements from Persian, Islamic and Indian architectural styles.
