CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The greatest monument to love, and the lost world of the Agra gardens and
their characterful owners, re-created through superb scholarship and evocative
The Taj Mahal is the epitome of Mughal art and one of the most famous
buildings in the world. Yet there have been few serious studies of it and no
full analysis of its architecture and meaning.Ebba Koch is the only scholar who
has been permitted to take measurements of the complex. She has been working on
the palaces and gardens of Shah Jahan for thirty years and on the Taj Mahal
itselfthe tomb of the emperor's wife, Mumtaz Mahalfor a decade.
The tomb represents the house of the queen in Paradise, and the author shows
how its setting was based on the palace gardens of the great nobles that lined
both sides of the river at Agra. She leads the reader through the entire
complex of the Taj Mahal, with an explanation of each building and an account
of the mausoleum's urban setting, its design and construction, its symbolic
meaning, and its history up to the present day.
The book features hundreds of new photographs plus drawings by the Indian
architect Richard Barraud that include plans and reconstructions of Agra and
the Taj complex as they looked in Shah Jahan's time.
