The best places to see the stars in Britain
Most beautiful historic building
It's a cliché, we know. But that doesn't make it any less true to call India's Taj Mahal the most beautiful historic building in the world. Anyone who thinks this otherworldly marble construction overrated has never actually seen it. It seems almost to glow with life: its stone is of dazzling purity, its craftsmanship extraordinary and its story endearingly romantic. The Indian poet Rabindranath Tagore is one of countless wordsmiths to have waxed lyrical about the Taj; he described it touchingly as, "a teardrop that sparkled spotlessly bright on the face of eternity".
