Agra was good. I never thought there would still be so many tourists flocking to the see the majestic Taj. N indeed, it rightly deserves to be one of the Wonders of the World. The sheer beauty of architecture is worth every effort. Breathtakingly beautiful - is the word. And let me tell you another thing - inspite of the humungous crowd there was a tranquility surround this amazing monument. You can be at peace with yourself, sitting by the sides of the Taj, watching the scantily flowing Yamuna river - even after being surrounded by masses of people. The experience really made me speechless. I just didnt want to leave the place.
We also visited Fatehpur Sikri, which was the Palace of Emperor Akbar. It was also beautifully done in Red Sandstone. The architecture was commendable.
Except for the vase with the flower & the good luck plant the rest of the curios were purchased from Fatehpur Sikri. The elephant is beautiful work of craftsmanship. It has two small elephants inside. I am amazed by the skills of those guys. The egg shaped cut work piece is a lamp. It glows beautifully when lit.
I have almost 200 pics which unfortunately wont be able to share on the blog. Wish there was some other way to show them to you.
