The Taj Mahal Palace Hotel

Built in 1903 – twenty years before the Gateway of India was build – the Taj Mahal Place Hotel in Mumbai is an architectural marvel and brings together Moorish, Oriental and Florentine styles.   It has been home to the Royalty, heads of states, tycoons, captains of industry, corporate nomads and jet-setters since then.

This hotel became even more famous worldwide after the unfortunate event that took place in November 2008, when it was attacked by a group of terrorists, where 183 people had been killed.

    Sorry for being away for long, but it seems you’re in India these days? Nice pictures (Y)

    No worries. Yes, Masood and I are in Mumbai until next week, then we’re off to Hyderabad for another week before heading back to the UAE, inshaAllah.

    It’s a really nice hotel. Too bad nowadays most architecture is so bland and generic.

    Oh yes, it is truly spectacular! I wonder how the rooms must look like.

    Very nice architecture indeed. Is India as “dirty” as Pakistan is, with respect to garbage on the streets, people peeing on the side of the road, etc?

    Yes, it is as “dirty” as Pakistan.
