Hey hello guys I am going to write about my one of the best experience vogue visit to the mighty Taj Mahal in a city where epic love tale is written, also known as Taj Mahal the epitome of love in Agra
. Before starting to tell you my experience of my visit to the one of the 7 wonders of the world in Agra
I must tell you something about the city as what I have experienced during my visit.
Agra’s history is largely recognized with Mughal Empire, and the city itself is one of the oldest city with the old vintage architecture of houses in some places of the city which will give you the feel of old Era and therefore I myself found it interesting and surely you will too.
And personally what I felt being in the love city is the culture of the city here people are very helpful and generous they will totally make you feel Incredible India or you can say they respect foreign tourists or tourist from another city, why I am saying this you will get to know in my experience. So let me start writing my finest experience of the visit to the Taj Mahal.
I was at my native place Jhansi then a friend of mine and me decided to visit the beautiful city Agra to explore Taj Mahal and to know it’s history, so we took the early morning train to reach Agra and finally the train took 3 hours approx to reach to Agra Cantt. Railway station from where the journey started.
We came out of the station as all the auto wale (auto/taxi Drivers) will bawl to take you to the best places of Agra so we managed to get a suitable driver for our journey so initially we were hungry I wanted to have the best breakfast of the Agra so our driver took us to Deviram sweets, I must tell you that crowd outside the shop was worth seeing as it seemed that whole Agra wanted to have breakfast at that shop we ate badaii (fried, puff bread much like kachori) and I must say it was awesome very exotic in taste so much about breakfast stuff 😉 then we headed to our destination the Mighty Taj Mahal, we entered from gate no. 2 all the rickshawala will force you to take ride to reach the entry gate (where you will get ticket) and we reached to the ticket counter as it was Rs. 750 for foreign tourists and Rs. 20 for Indians.
So we bought 2 tickets and headed towards the checking gate where policemen will do a regular check process and after walking a small distance you will see a large old gate and on entering from that gate you will see one of the most beautiful architectural design known as The Taj Mahal, I can’t express you in words how I felt at that moment a single word came from my mouth just ‘waoo’, Exquisite beauty yes indeed, then we went inside as Taj Mahal is covered with three large gates from its front, right and left side and on back of its the river Yamuna flowing as Taj was built on the river bank so in front of Taj there is a beautiful garden , you will see all the tourist taking pictures of their loved ones as a background of beautiful Taj.
So I must tell you the real story of why Taj Mahal was built, Taj Mahal was commissioned in 1632 by the Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan (reigned 1628–1658), to house the tomb of his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. The tomb is the centerpiece of a 42-acre complex, which includes a mosque and a guest house, and is set in formal gardens bounded on three sides by acreaneted walls.
The gardens were teeming with tourists, but it’s such an expansive space that it didn’t feel over-crowded (at least not on our visit).
The ten-minute stroll from the gate to the Taj, through Persian-inspired gardens, lined with trees, fountains, and a reflecting pool running down the center, seemed pleasantly designed to give the viewer more time to take in the gorgeous building from a slowly changing perspective.
So keeping your steps forward towards Taj Mahal you’ll see a beautiful garden in front of the Taj and from there, visitors takes pictures of their loved ones and also for visitors there are guides who will tell you the whole story why Taj was built.
And moving forward you’ll be allowed to wear cotton cloth with elastic over your shoes because Taj Mahal is pure white marble it will stop it from getting dirty.
when going Inside there are 2 tombs, the Shah Jahan’s tomb and his wife visitors used to see the tombs by taking a close circle. Unfortunately, taking photos inside is prohibited, inside it’s essentially one big empty room, serving as a mausoleum (with some surrounding peripheral chambers). However, as a resting place for a beloved wife,so this was all I got, the exit.
So this was my mesmerizing journey A vogue travel to the incredible Taj all I can say that first glimpse was all it took to understand why this place is so incredible.
So this brings to an end of my one of the best visits in this country hope you enjoyed reading this.
