The white marble surface of the Taj Mahal changes its manifestation with the passing of the seasons. It glows brightly in the sunlight in summer and reflects the grey-clouded sky during the monsoon. Under the light of the full moon however, the Taj Mahal is said to reveal its paramount charm - shimmering like a fairy tale castle built for a legendary princess. Tourists are now allowed to view the Taj Mahal by moonlight.

The dome is made of white marble, but the tomb is set against the plain across the river Yamuna and it is this mystical backdrop that works its magic of colors that, through their reflection, change the view of the Taj. The colors change at dissimilar hours of the day and during different seasons. Like a jewel, the Taj sparkles in moonlight when the semi-precious stones inlaid into the white marble on the chief mausoleum catch the glow of the moon. The Taj looks pinkish in the morning, milky white in the evening and golden when the moon shines. These changes, they say, symbolize the special moods of woman.
