Een bezoek aan de <a href="https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taj_Mahal" target="_blank">Taj Mahal</a>, één van de <a href="http://www.dewereldwonderen.nl/7-wereldwonderen/moderne-wereldwonderen/" target="_blank">7 wereldwonderen</a>, stond dan ook al heel lang op onze verlanglijst.</p> <p>Na een veel te korte nacht besloten we om 's morgen heel vroeg met een chauffeur naar Agra te rijden, zodat we in de voormiddag de <strong>Taj Mahal </strong>konden bezoeken en in de namiddag terug in het hotel waren. Een <strong>3u durende rit</strong> (enkele richting!) maar onze inspanning en geduld werden (meer dan) beloond!</p> <p>De typisch <strong>Indische 'chaos'</strong> aan de ingang lieten niet veel goeds beloven, maar eens je door de hoofdingang het <strong>immense mausoleum van witte marmer</strong> te zien krijgt, valt je mond wel open.... </p> <p><img alt="Ingang Taj Mahal, Agra" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="cc2193f7-2cc0-463d-884b-98cf6dd37f11" src="//www.ottenbourg.com/blog/sites/default/files/inline-images/TajMahal_2019_2.jpg" /></p> <p><img alt="Binnenkomst" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="5fdd95ab-b2e3-40b7-861b-1d01c29786ce" src="//www.ottenbourg.com/blog/sites/default/files/inline-images/TajMahal_2019_3.jpg" /></p> <p><img alt="Crewfie" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="4fc73772-c5cf-4fa3-b46c-b0c44d62ec80" src="//www.ottenbourg.com/blog/sites/default/files/inline-images/TajMahal_2019_4.jpg" /></p> <p>Dit imposante monument-begraafplaats werd <strong>tussen 1631 en 1648</strong> gebouwd door Shah Jahan, de vijfde heerser van het Mogolrijk, als <strong>eerbetoon aan zijn favoriete echtgenote</strong>.</p> <p>De Mogoldynastie had de gewoonte om voor haar leden grafmonumenten in <strong>symmetrisch aangelegde tuinen</strong> te bouwen. Tuinen staan in de <strong>islamitische traditie</strong> symbool voor het paradijs en de Mogols poogden voor hun overledenen een hemelse woonplaats op aarde te scheppen.</p> <p>Het mausoleum wordt geroemd om de<strong> volmaakt uitgevoerde symmetrie</strong>, de verfijnde decoraties in de vorm van <strong>kalligrafieën uit de Koran</strong>, de marmeren reliëfs en het <strong>ingelegde steenwerk</strong> en niet op de laatste plaats vanwege het subtiele lichtspel, dat het gebouw steeds een ander aanzien geeft.</p> <p><img alt="Taj Mahal" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="abb4046a-04d8-4cf4-8110-09fcccc83035" src="//www.ottenbourg.com/blog/sites/default/files/inline-images/TajMahal_2019_1.jpg" /></p> <p><img alt="Groepsfoto" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="bf4f4029-0ab3-4e79-956b-48d84962a93e" src="//www.ottenbourg.com/blog/sites/default/files/inline-images/TajMahal_2019_5.jpg" /></p> <p>Na een korte lunch was het weer tijd om 3u terug te rijden in de andere richting....</p> <p>In toaal dus meer dan 6 uur in de auto gezeten, om amper 3 à 4 uur ter plaatse te zijn om de <strong>Taj Mahal te bezoeken</strong>. Zot zijn doet geen pijn, zeggen ze, maar ik zou het opnieuw doen! Het was zeker de moeite waard!</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-labels field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--items"> <div class="field--item"><a href="/blog/labels/a319.html" hreflang="nl">A319</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/blog/labels/jan" hreflang="nl">Jan</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/blog/labels/emirates.html" hreflang="nl">Emirates</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/blog/labels/japan" hreflang="nl">Japan</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/blog/labels/india.html" hreflang="nl">India</a></div> </div> <section> <h2>Comments</h2> <article data-comment-user-id="0" id="comment-1768" class="js-comment"> <mark class="hidden" data-comment-timestamp="1567896412"></mark> <footer> <p>Ingediend door <span lang="" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Moeke en vake</span> op 5/09/2019</p> </footer> <div> <h3><a href="/blog/comment/1768#comment-1768" class="permalink" rel="bookmark" hreflang="nl">zeker de moeite waard!!
