Taj Mahal

 What a charming old lady.....we arrived rather early [no use thinking of sun rise with the fog and haze obscuring it]....but before the hords so had lots of space to wander around....
 So misty you can only just see everyone and the Lady together





 The royal residence



Those pavers embody age,  the way they have warn creates a wonderful visual feast...and feels great under foot.

Just outside the gates of the Taj and this was the traffic we had to wait for, lots of lovely plump water buffalo
Delhi now and one final whirlwind day....

Fiona, I don't know if I could stand the beauty of the colors and textures of textiles, architecture and scenery you see on your trips. I think my heart might explode! Thank you so much for letting us share it vicariously in your blogs.

This 17th century mausoleum was built by then Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan for his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal. Located in the south of Agra, it can reached from Delhi within 4 hours and hence, the Organizing Committee is arranging for Express trains that will take the delegates for a same day Taj Mahal Agra Tours
