India: Taj Mahal

The Taj Mahal is one of India's most well known points of interest. Take a look at this video to learn more about the scandal of love, greed and sorrow behind this magnificent building's conception.

Behind every work of art, there is usually a GREAT story. What's your favorite monument, painting, place of interest etc. and tell us the story behind it!!


  1. I was on a school trip for a week in London and fell in love with Westminster Abbey. If you have never been... GO! And get a guided tour by a verger there. Those dudes really know their stuff. The one of hundreds of stories that really stuck with me was the poet (Ben Jonson)who could not afford a regular sized plot in poets corner so he opted for an 18"x18" hole and was buried STANDING UP!!

  2. Thanks for the best was very useful for me.keep sharing such ideas in the future as well. Thanks for giving me the useful information. I think I need it!
