Travel || Agra

After two days in New Delhi we drove four hours to Agra, the city of the Taj Mahal. We arrived around noon and after a quick lunch of curry, kofta, and rice we headed to the palace. To protect the palace and gardens from pollution we had to get out of our van and take an electric gold cart to the entrance. The Taj truly is as majestic as it seems. And the gates and other ancient buildings around it were designed to create optical illusions, always drawing your attention to the beautiful memorial of a queen from her king.

After the Taj Mahal we went to Agra Fort. Our guide showed us the house arrest cell where the king who built the Taj Mahal was jailed by son after he tried to build a second Taj. On our way in we saw a dozen money’s crossing the wall and many more inside! Such monkey, big fan.

After the Fort we headed back to the hotel to relax before another day of travel to the final point of The Golden Triangle.
