Taj Mahal, Agra, India - Truly a wonder of the world and a World Heritage Site. Completed around 1653, the Taj Mahal is actually a marble mausoleum built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his third wife. It's an awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping structure with a style that combines elements from Persian, Turkish and Indian architecture. One of the most memorable moments of my trip to India ( ~ expat's travels in India ~ )
Eilean Donan Castle ~ built in the 13th century Scotland.
Phugtal Gompa, India. Hanging onto the edge of a rocky gorge at the mouth of a giant cave, this sacred construction is built directly into the cliff side. Phugtal’s (Phuktal) 70 or so Buddhist monks live there, dividing their holy time between the monastery’s library and prayer rooms.
