#6. The grave site is also the only part that is not perfectly symmetrical
The Taj Mahal is any obsessive dream, with meticulous symmetry across its long and wide diameters. The sole exception to this otherwise uniform aesthetic scheme lies, again, in the gravesite. Mumtaz Mahal’s casket is located in the exact center of the palace crypt, but it is Shah Jahan’s grave, introduced to the mausoleum following his death in 1666. That rocks its artistic equilibrium with a west-of-center resting place.
