I’d started my Marriage Life with lots of Love and We added many Memories in Tajmahal, which is in a city of Agra. …. Because of its shape, the dome is often called an onion dome or amrud. We Reached at evening with full of anxiety to see tajmahal in full moon light as we didnot find the tickets to book for night time visit, We directly visited to buy the tickets at the entrance unfortunately we did not get the tickets as they are already sold . We reached to our hotel the view from our hotel is really awesome at the night too there is a full moon but they did not put on the Lights .It was little cool as we visited in the month of November and there were so many foreigners in that hotel, but We still took my time to appreciate the view . You can see the Taj Mahal from there, about to come.
The Taj Mahal itself is 500 m away from the Hotel we booked. If you’re going by walk in street, you will need to taj a bit far from entrance and take a rickshaw costs( Rs5 ) until you reach but it is not neccesary we can walk By seeing and shopping .
I know think, the Taj Mahal is a mausoleum but in my view it is a temple of Love.As,It was built by Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his third and favourite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. She died giving birth to their 14th child. There’s a myth that says Shah Jahan planned to build another mausoleum for himself in black marble, across the Yamuna River, but he died and his son didn’t carry on with the project. This information we got from a guide who is guiding to his foreign visiters and they discussed with us very friendly at hotel.
Although I had already seen the Taj before with my Family, but I was certainly not prepared and seems Like a First time and felt how big the building was. No wonder it’s as beautiful as though we visit many times its Looks gives a new experience. Therfore known as the one of the Wonder in the world.As it was a big with dome shape . The reflecting water and the tall trees completed postcard scenery I’ll never forget. I think we visited at right as the weather was very pleasant at Morning and got there on a really Pleasant day and even during the afternoon, so there were a LOT of people and you have to fight your way to take a picture. I’d prefer to go during sunrise and get a little closer to the serene and lovely feeling of being there, finally we did the same got a great Pictures fills our day with precious memories.
In the Taj Mahal, Inside Shah Jahan’s tomb is placed beside his wife’s. His tomb is bigger than his wife’s and their thombs are not similar. We are not allowed to take photos inside, but we can fill the photo copy in our eyes , What a design and though its like normal thomb but their love matters here and the outside is way more interesting and impressive. For me, it was way more interesting just to walk around and from the top the view is awesome the Lonely river around Taj adds more beauty to taj mahal and take a view of the gardens from above. I’ve found myself going to the exit, but always looking behind me just too difficult to leave the building.
There are a lot of Little stores ,When you walk back to the parking where you can buy souvenirs and other things in marble. I got a small size Taj Mahal for only 120 Rupees. India is a great place for shopping and Mostly Delhi is cheaper to buy some tradition wear. More than this, Every one want to take a little Taj to remind you of one of the most amazing places in the World.
