Taj Mahal

 When I first started planning my trip to India I knew stopping at the Taj Mahal would be a must for me.  Known as the ‘crown of palaces’, the Taj Mahal is a white marble mausoleum built for Mughal emperor Shah Jahan for his third wife.

My first sight of the Taj Mahal was through all the fog and you can see why it’s one of the seven wonders of the world.

Everything is in perfect symmetry and there are so many people there. I even had my picture taken on the same marble bench as princess Diana.

It’s an awe inspiring site and was such a perfect day to see it.  I can’t wait to return and also see more of Rajasthan.

There were so many people there but just as it was quieting down the sun came out and you could see the reflection of the Taj in the pools.  And of course I had a much better view of it as well.

Check out these off the beaten path destination in India.

On my next trip to India I really want to go to the western part of India such as Jaipur and Udaipur.
