Intricate Carvings on your walls
Towering Pillars surrounding you from all four sides
Your milky white structure, like a dream
Your solid marble, like the moon
The backdrop of pristine Yamuna adding to your charisma
Oh Taj! I am consumed by your magnificence
I am thankful to the traveler within
For she takes me places and showers me with bliss!
