Taj

T02053135611
The Taj Mahal: one of the greatest architectural miracles wrought by man. A monument to live built by a great emperor for his dead queen. But through the pure white marble seep the rumours of madness, cruelty and despair. And four centuries later, the ghost of the grief-stricken empress is seen wandering the walls, begging for redemption. Taj brings to life an opulent period of Islamic history through the eyes of a young Asian woman on a pilgrimage to her past. Yet past meets present as fantasy, philosophy and drama are woven together to explore the eternal conflicts between love and death, belief and conscience, knowledge and understanding.
