The Taj Mahal, India, is one of the many wonders of our world. It’s beautiful architecture is a testament to the love the architect shared with his late wife. The Taj Mahal servers as a tomb, perhaps the most ornate tomb the world has ever seen. Located along the river bank in Agra, India, the Taj Mahal grounds are as beautiful as the tomb itself. Visitor to the site are first greeted by a large reflecting pound that sits squarely in front of the main building, mirroring its image in the still waters.
On either side of the long pool stand manicured trees and large fields of trimmed grass visitors can rest on while they take in the majestic nature of the historic site. A single moment is not enough to truly absorb the Taj Mahal, nonetheless, we’d like to share this video with you, so you can have a glimpse, or perhaps re-experience the Taj Mahal, India, through our time there.
Enjoy a peaceful moment at the Taj Mahal, India
For those travelling in northern India, the Taj Mahal should not be missed. Not only is it a renowned world heritage site, it is perhaps the most stunning piece of architecture anywhere in the region. While Agra, the city where the Taj Mahal is located offers other destinations like the Agra Fort, for instance, the Taj Mahal, India is hands down the most spectacular attraction of them all.
While we highly recommend touring the grounds and the interior of the tomb, which must be seen for yourself as all photography of the interior is forbidden. We also recommend heading across the river, particularly around dusk to get a view of the sun setting over the white, ornate building. Many tours offer this chance on packaged trips but you are free to catch a tuk-tuk over the nearby bridge to do a self-guided viewing and enjoy a picturesque opportunity that will stay with you for a lifetime.
