Agra / by a zugunruhe

A short train ride from Delhi, or an awkward car ride from Jaipur, lies Agra. While Agra has its own identity in north Indian history, it is mainly known now as the home of the Taj Mahal. 

Needing no introduction, this monument glows in ivory from the moment you step past the gates. Much like the Sheik Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, nothing you read or hear before going prepares you for the amount of detail used in its construction.
