Arched Doorways

One of the most common features of Mughal architecture is the presence of large doorways or arches, normally intricately carved. At the Taj Mahal, one of the finest examples of Mughal architecture in the world, this feature is very prominent. On each side of the four-sided main building, there are large arched doorways. In this photograph, showing the front-facing side of the Taj Mahal, one central arch flanked by four small ones can be seen. It is difficult not to admire the magnificence and beauty of this architectural marvel.

  1. I love buildings like these where people have seen the value in creating something as beautiful as possible, not purely functional as is usually the case today. Excellent take on the theme.
