I had the idea that the Taj Mahal was just a single structure sitting alone in the middle of an Indian city. I should not have been surprised then, to see that it is a whole complex! It is large and vast, just like the country itself.
Palaces, forts, and other structures in India are built along symmetrical lines. Amidst the frenetic busyness bordering on chaos, symmetry is everywhere. Symmetry, leading to harmony and unity with the universe. This the Indian world-view. Check out the symmetry in these structures.
Here are some of them:
