In pictures: An aerial tour of the Taj Mahal

The photographers were the first people allowed to fly over the iconic Indian mausoleum in 15 years…

WE CAN’T ALL afford to jet off on a world tour this summer but that doesn’t mean we can’t still see its wonders.

The kind folk at Airpano.com have put together a host of stunning panoramic views from around the world including an incredible aerial tour of the Taj Mahal.

The breathtaking marble mausoleum was built in 1631 when emperor Shah Jahan was left grief striken by the death of his third wife and it is one of the top tourist destinations on the globe.

The aerial photography company were the first people allowed to fly over the Taj Mahal in some 15 years and the images are truly remarkable.
