India: Taj Mahal
The Taj Mahal, built from 1632 by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan to honour his favourite wife Mumtaz, is truly an architectural icon.

In 1992, akg-images photographer Jean-Louis Nou visited the mausoleum and took some two hundred photographs of this magnificent masterpiece of Islamic art, capturing not only the building's monumental scale but also the delicacy of its rich decoration in a series of extraordinary details. We present a tiny overview of the collection with more available online.
