Agra is right in the middle of India, and for many tourists, the gate to THE Taj Mahal, one of seven new wonders of the world. Agra Fort provides a teaser of the world wonder from afar. On a very hot day, the fort provides little respite from the sun lights. The haze doesn’t diminish the anticipation of the Taj Mahal from afar.
Taj Mahal is the tomb commissioned by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan for his beloved empress Mumtaz Mahal. The Taj Mahal is the showcase of the emperor’s love. The highlight of the tomb is the marble dome dominating the surrounding complex.
On a summer month, it is a little hazy around the tomb. But the reflection of the marble structure on the water is calm and beautiful. The marble stones are cool to the touch on a hot day.
Usually the complex is brimming with tourists around, but as the sun sets and tourists leaving, a quiet environment is more appealing to fully absorb the love story.
A little further away, the white marble of Taj Mahal is contrasted with the brick red of Fatehpur Sikri, covered in green water.
Private vehicle hire is the best transport to move from one place to another.
