    ... are allowed within about a 2km radius of the Taj to prevent the marble being discolored by pollution, so we transfer to a rather ancient electric bus. The Taj has it's back to the river and extensive gardens and buildings enclosing the other 3 sides. The main North gate opposite the Taj is pretty grand in red sandstone and there are also East & West gates. Our first sight of the Taj is stunning. The white marble from ...

    ... As the main building is made of white marble, it changes colour based on the time of day and the sunlight. After there Taj was complete, Shahjahan wanted to ensure that nobody else built a similar structure anywhere else in the world. He told the Persians that they were not allowed to leave India or to work for anyone else in the future, but he paid them all a handsome pension to retire. I'm really happy we got up so early to visit before the crowds and ...

Several years ago all factories which emitted smoke were also ...

    ... fortress it is a place of beauty too. It's incredibly tranquil in the gardens of the public audience hall and the many palaces within it's walls show the amazing mixture of influences from Muslim, Hindu and Christian religions. The fort really brought to life the story of Emperor Akbar's imprisonment by his own son in sight of the tomb he built for his wife - the Taj Mahal. Compared to the simplicity and beauty of the mausoleum of the Taj Mahal, ...

    ... people sitting around outside.
    After a three plus hour bus ride, we were ready to see the Taj Mahal. The building was everything I had hoped it would be-- the contract between the white marble and blue sky is breathtaking on a bright, sunny day. The Sharma's arranged for a VIP tour of the mausoleum, which included a golf cart pick-up at the bus and a fantastic tour guide who provided us wonderful insights into the ...
