Taj Mahal Quotes (1 quote)
It is good to recall that three centuries ago, around the year 1660, two of the greatest monuments of modern history were erected, one in the West and one in the East; St. Pauls Cathedral in London and the Taj Mahal in Agra. Between them, the two symbolize, perhaps better than words can describe, the comparative level of architectural technology, the comparative level of craftsmanship and the comparative level of affluence and sophistication the two cultures had attained at that epoch of history. But about the same time there was also createdand this time only in the Westa third monument, a monument still greater in its eventual import for humanity. This was Newtons Principia, published in 1687. Newton's work had no counterpart in the India of the Mughuls.
