Who doesn’t know the famous Taj Mahal in India? Who doesn’t want to see the most recognizable structures in the world?
I think one person can’t say he or she has been to India if he/she did not see this one of the most beautiful buildings in the world. It stands as a symbol of eternal love built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal.
I just had to see Taj Mahal located in Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India. Despite the rainy weather, I got up early and walked to the ticketing office. I paid 750 INR for the ticket, they gave me a small bottle of water and shoe socks. They provide shuttle to the entrance and back. It will be more convenient if you don’t bring anything with you other than your wallet and phone/camera. I met a guy who had to go back out to leave his selfie stick in one of the stores outside because it’s not allowed! One girl told me she was not allowed to get in with her journal so she left her bag in one of the stores as well. These stores won’t charge you for keeping your stuff but they sure hope you’d buy something in exchange of their “good deeds”. The restrictions don’t make sense but you are allowed to bring your camera and phone so I guess that’s all that matters.
Stunning. Beautiful. Lovely.
What else can I say? It was just stunning, beautiful, lovely! 🙂
This is my 28th day in India and Taj Mahal is my last stop before I reach my 30th and last day in this country. I can now tick this off my bucket list. 🙂
Here’s a selfie of me and Taj. LOL!
Yey, I got to see Taj Mahal in India! 😉
