Description

Built in the early 1630s by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan as a tribute to his second wife, Mumtaz Mahal, the Taj Mahal stands as one of India’s most iconic beauties. Its precise symmetry and impeccable detail—it’s decorated with calligraphy from the Koran and with carvings of flowers inlaid with precious stones—make this white marble structure one of the world’s most breathtaking pieces of architecture. Located by the Yamuna River, the Taj took 22 years and 20,000 workers to complete. It contains a tomb (for Mumtaz) and a mosque, as well as gardens, gateways, and fountains. The main structure is surrounded by four minarets, which were built to lean out slightly so that an earthquake wouldn’t cause them to fall on the palace.

I like it. Good job team! I just read an article in the Financial Times about the new Photosynth service so I had to check it out. Now, all I need to do is figure out how to make it work with my photos. I will probably need to re-train myself to be sure and take a panorama set of pics instead of just a few snaps. I repeat, good job team!

I had no idea there were three other buildings on either side and at the other end of the pool. Amazing.

Is it just me or there's nothing but black on the screen?

Why don't just make a movie using the same digital camera and upload it to Youtube? I think that the result would be better. :)

After watching the how to make your own synth. It could just be me, but I fail to see the point in making one! Why not just take a video?
