On the second day in Agra it was up early for sunrise at the Taj. We were not disappointed as there where relatively few people and the Taj itself really is the most beautiful building in the world. We wondered around took hundreds of pictures before the crowds really arrived. It was very exciting that we had a relatively clear day and we got to enjoy the Taj before being overrun with people.
At 6:00am we boarded the train to Agra from Delhi and it was off to to see the most visited site in India "Taj Mahal". We decided that we wanted to see it at sunrise and there fore spend an extra day in Agra. On the first day in Agra then we visited the Agra Fort, another impressive Mughul Fort. We walked around the old Agra city and did a little shopping which is an exciting experience in itself with my parents and my mom loves to haggle and my dad just likes talking about anything with all the shop owners. After a few purchases we went to a little nature walk where we could see the sunset over the Taj Mahal and also check out a few new birds.
