Arabic calligraphy, Taj Mahal

Taj Mahal calligraphy

Detail of the inlaid marble calligraphy gracing the walls of the Taj Mahal.  The synthesis of Persian, Islamic and Indian design into a unique style that we now call Mughal reached its apex here, justifiably making the Taj Mahal one of the most awe-inspiring and beautiful buildings in the world.  Agra, India.
