In short

An ode to love sits on the banks of Agra's Yamuna River. Taj Mahal's legend is as charming as its beauty as it testifies emperor Shah Jahan's love for his favourite wife. No wonder India's most iconic mausoleum finds itself crowded with thousand of visitors wishing to capture its magnificence with their cameras.

An unforgettable visit to the Taj Mahal, consumed by a fascination of it’s visitors desperation to capture their moments on camera.

As I myself spent most of my time capturing their moments, it became brutally clear to me that neither this film, nor their photographs can ever capture the heart-wrenching beauty of that stunning building, yet only succeed in completely detaching us from the moment itself.

No actors, artists or performers were used in the making of this film, only real people and real moments.
