Travel Thursday: Taj Mahal

It’s Thursday again, which means it’s another good opportunity for me to dig through my archives and post up an old favourite photo. I’ve got an entire collection of photos that are similar to the two that I’m posting today. For those of you that have been lucky enough to visit this site, you too will understand what I mean! The Taj Mahal is stunning. From every angle, and in all light, it is just simple beautiful. It is one of, if not the most beautiful buildings I’ve ever seen.

Like many others, I woke up early the morning that I visited the Taj and paid the $15 to visit the site (locals pay $0.40). I expected it to be touristy, run-down, underwhelming and a general disappointment. I couldn’t have have been further from the truth. Though Agra isn’t the nicest of cities (in my opinion), the Taj is well maintained and still feels truly spiritual, despite the numbers of visitors it gets. It’s well worth a visit to Agra to check out the Taj (and the Red Forte). I think I’ll print one of these and hang it on the wall – which one would you choose to hang?
