A trip to India is not complete without a trip to the glorious Taj Mahal in Agra. Regrettably to the endless air pollutions, apart from Taj Mahal, Agra has little to offer for the tourism. “Agra” amongst many have the reputation of being aloof, but not “Taj Mahal”. Despite being tugged 200km away from New Delhi, the capital city of India, it is still worth to pay a visit to Taj Mahal.
I personally feel that pictures does little justice to Taj Mahal as the details on the monuments were very intricate and were usually not captured in pictures. Monuments were carved patiently by artisans, from the tiny carvings of the flowers’ petals to the installations of the huge minarets and the domes that took years to complete, this is an architectural wonder of its time, and it took my breath away.
Try to get there early when the sunrise to avoid the crowd which can be overwhelming, and soak in the biggest monument of love on earth, built with devotion for his deceased wife by King Shah Jehan.
Oh, the symmetry is amazing! As if someone put a large mirror on it :)). Beautiful!!
Thanks gara! Taj Mahal, indeed, is beautiful 🙂 🙂
I cannot wait to go to India some day! It sounds incredible!

Really beautiful photos, Alex! Everyone says the same about Agra, that it’s the exact opposite of the pretty and majestic Taj Mahal.
