Agra (The Taj Mahal)

Finally we made it to our holy grail-the Taj Mahal. Both so overwhelmed by the beauty of the building we decided to pay the astronomical price of 750 rupees twice to see it at sun set on our night of arrival in Agra, and then to return the next day at sunrise.

Actually it was interesting to experience it at both times; the overwhelming crowds at sunset meant posing for an estimated 150 photo's for Indian tourists who wanted a holiday snap with some goras, and also meant risking life and limb being piled inside an already dangerously overcrowded building to view the morceleum hundreds at a time.

Sunrise, in contrast, was a picture of serenity, with far fewer crowds and those that were present being mainly other foreign tourists.
