Greetings from India…wish you were here!
Photo above of the world famous Taj Mahal in Agra, India. Taken in November 2010.
Was it worth it? All the swarms of people, crowds, continual stares, crappy food, disgusting toilets, and four hour car ride to Agra? Yes. Yes it was. When I first saw the Taj Mahal, I was taken aback by it’s majestic beauty. It took my breath away. To see such an incredibly, spectacular sparkling white work of art in all the dirtiness of India was a surprise in itself. The sheer beauty of the Taj Mahal did not disappoint. It was simply incredible and made my heart melt.
We snapped some pictures and walked around, admiring the inside and out. We learned about the romantic history of the building and how it took over twenty years and thousands of workers and artisans to build. It was amazing, especially given the time period in which it was built: The early 1600’s. It was a major feat of architecture and remains one of the most impressive sites I’ve ever seen.
