some old known picture of Taj Mahal

If you noticed, water color painting and the photograph are almost from the same angle, interesting.

Not at all, painting is from opposite bank, pic from same the bank as taj.

you're correct, I was talking about angle of the picture and the painting. Picture is taken standing behind trees on some high ground, which is visible in painting.

Yes there are small bastion like structures away from main taj on same side and opposite bank too from where it's likely taken. You can see them in present times too if u r observant.

Sir some problem in reading the book online. It is not opening.
