Curatorial description (Accessed: 4 January 2019)
Beato took many views of the Taj Mahal, an iconic monument in India. Dating from the mid-seventeenth century the mausoleum built by the ruler Shah Jahan to honor his late wife is regarded as one of the best examples of the architecture of the Mughal period (1526-1858).
