11.08.13

Well, Prince Charles and Camilla Couldn't Visit The Taj Mahal, Could They?

For obvious reasons (see picture below) the Taj Mahal is out of bounds for Camilla Parker Bowles, so the royal couple today had to make do with a visit to the Akshardham temple during their Indian tour.

The temple, opened in 2005, is one of the largest structures in the world and is  built from Rajasthani pink sandstone and is covered with elaborately carved details of dancers, musicians and deities.
