An excellent presentation. Well organized, beautiful pictures. Very much from an archeologist’s perspective but balanced with an artist’s appreciation for magic and nuance.
An excellent introduction to the Taj Mahal. Tiago showed us so much more than I imagined was there. The details were astonishing and varied and even seemed to make the light dance as it passed through the carved marble windows.
Of the 3 conversations in which I have participated, this one by far was the very best! The presenter was well prepared, extremely knowledgeable, his architectural background enhanced the presentation, his pictures were outstanding.
Tiago took us on an in depth fantastic tour of the Taj Mahal Complex, adding historical background of the Mughal Empire. He focused on the construction, architecture, and the intricate and gorgeous interior, I am not sure that I will have the opportunity to visit the Taj Mahal but this is the next best thing to being there and perhaps even better because there were no crowds! Tiago's presentation is thorough and well organized with wonderful visuals. One of the best seminars!
I learned more about the Taj Mahal through Tiago Neiva's tour than I would have on a personal visit. So much emphasis is on the white monument but Tiago showed us there is so much more in his analysis and interpretation of the gates, gardens and mausoleums of the complex. Thanks to him I can appreciate the beauty of the Taj Mahal much more.
