Last Minute Trip to Taj Mahal

18 05 2009

On the spur of the moment, we decided to modify our plans and swing by Agra to see one of the remaining wonders of the world – Taj Mahal. After all, we were just a short night ride away and we had to see what those 2 to 4 million tourists visit every year.

It did not disappoint:

Tolik was nice enough to take a picture. Unfortunately, the camera died before I could take a photo of him.

Very much an Islamic architectural style of the Mughal imperial period, especially with the four minarets. Interestingly enough, it looks much older than it really is. In fact it’s very modern, just a bit older than St. Petersburg (350 years old). It’s on my list of places to see for sure.

Where to next?
