The Taj

No trip to India is complete without seeing the Taj Mahal. So, we left Varanasi and set off for a Agra - a pretty crap city which has nothing going for it except for the Taj Mahal and a fort.

But Agra knows how to make the most of it... You'd figure that for the largest tourist attraction in India, you wouldn't need to have an exorbantly high admission price, but I suppose they know what they're doing. We weren't sent packing at the $20 admission price - equivalent to all of our usual daily budget. I mean how could you not go in?

We spent the entire afternoon admiring the Taj from different angles and in different lighting conditions, and it is a truly amazing site...
