THE TAJ MAHAL ~ PRINT

ROOH, a collaboration is an exploration of love, friendship, nostalgia and identity through architecture and calligraphy. By fine artist Babbuthepainter & Aadil Abedi.
Landmark buildings across India and Pakistan are at the center of this six painting series. Aadil and Babbu chose three monuments each that paid homage to their heritage, The Taj Mahal, Charminar, Badshahi Masjid, The Golden Temple, Nankana Sahib Gurdwara, and Takht Sri Patna Sahib, accompanied by a spoken word passage for each.

The Taj Mahal -  'Crown of the Palace', is an ivory-white marble mausoleum on the southern bank of the river Yamuna in the Indian city of Agra. The Taj Mahal was commissioned by Shah Jahan in 1631, to be built in the memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal, who died on 17 June that year, while giving birth to their 14th child, Gauhara Begum. Construction started in 1632, and the mausoleum was completed in 1648, while the surrounding buildings and garden were finished five years later. The imperial court documenting Shah Jahan's grief after the death of Mumtaz Mahal illustrates the love story held as the inspiration for the Taj Mahal.

“Oh Khusrau, the river of love Runs in strange directions. One who jumps into it drowns, and one who drowns, gets across” ~ Khusrau (1253-1325), the Sufi poet from the Delhi Sultanate.
