I am forever in awe with the concrete and abstract art form of The Taj Mahal.  A structure rich in visual elements of size and proportion, flawlessly made of  marble,  visible calligraphy made from gems,  design of flowers in the area as it is glowing across the Jamuna river,  Taj Mahal is the kind of beauty that will never be surpassed.

(In the memory of his dear wife and queen Mumtaz Mahal at Agra, IndiaTaj Mahal was built by  Muslim Emperor Shah Jahan over a period of 22 years and employing 20,000 workers.)

My compulsory souvenir shot at the entrance of the Taj.   🙂

From Jaipur City, Taj Mahal is approximately 7 hours by train. If you are coming from New Delhi, it is 3 hours away by fast train. Currently the airport in Agra where the Taj Mahal is located is still under renovation.  Entrance fee is around 700 Rupees for foreigners, 30 Rupees for the locals. If you are in Agra, do not miss the visiting the Agra fort too just few minutes from the Taj Mahal.
