The Taj Mahal and Agra Fort are definitely two of the must see places in India and to a good extent, in the whole world. In fact Taj Mahal is in the must see list of tourists from all over the world and not just India. It has become a symbol of India for many of the Hollywood movies as well.
Beauty of Taj Mahal
Once you visit the Taj Mahal you can make it out why it is so popular. It may not come across as as magnificent as it you may have imagined it to be, as was the case with me, it’s outstanding nonetheless. And the whole compound in which it is located and the structure itself is fairly huge to make you a little tired in the end.
When you visit the Taj Mahal keep a few things in mind, like you should take the electric car from parking to ticket counter, we took the camel-cart, it was enjoyable but he deliberately takes you shopping and we didn’t like it that much.Also, they’ll not allow you to take any eatables or bags inside, so be careful you don’t carry anything else it becomes a hassle for you.
Agra Fort stands tall
To me Agra Fort looked more magnificent than anything, especially the entrance. It is not very far off from Taj Mahal and is a must see place too. The Jehangir’s Hauz was quite nice and the architecture was impressive too. The view of Taj Mahal from Agra Fort is really amazing too.
On a whole, the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort do a complete justice to the name and fame they carry and are places you should not miss visiting at least once.
