Mounument to Love, the Taj Mahal in Agra India, found itself face to face with Mark Zuckerberg on Tuesday.

Ahead of the Townhall Question and Answer session at IIT-Delhi, Zuckerberg Facebook founder and CEO put up a Facebook post with a photo of him looking at the Taj Mahal in Agra.

Mark’s love affair with India seems to be at an all time high. “More than 130 million people use Facebook in India. I’m looking forward to hearing directly from one of our most active and engaged communities,” Zuckerberg had written on a previous Facebook post.

He had also confessed, last month, that the relationship really started when he was at a low point and….

“I went and saw one of my mentors, Steve Jobs, and he told me that in order to reconnect with what I believed is the mission of the company, I should visit this temple that he had gone to in India early in his evolution of thinking about what he wanted Apple and his vision of the future to be,” Zuckerberg had said.

“So I went and I traveled for almost a month and seeing the people, seeing how people connected, and having the opportunity to feel how much better the world could be if everyone had a stronger ability to connect, reinforced for me the importance of what we were doing. And that is something I have always remembered over the last ten years as we built Facebook,” the Facebook CEO had said.

Face to face with one of the wonders of the world Mark said,

“It is even more stunning than I expected. It’s incredible what people can build — and what love can motivate us to build,” Zuckerberg said in his post.

Was Mark refering to his own creation or Shah Jahan’s ?
