    I hope you enjoyed your stay in Agra but I wonder how you manage to stay in hotel with just a fan, If you were here in October – January, then its OK otherwise in summers temperature can be as high as 48 degree calculus and without AC it’s impossible to survive.

    There is always another side of a beautiful thing. These photos of the surrounding areas of Taj Mahal is amazing. People visiting the Taj should also explore its surroundings. You never know, they might like it.

    What a wonderful story including some great shots. Whenever I travel I do always make sure to see some of the key landmarks. I think it’s important but I do find most of my joy in traveling when just walking around the neighborhoods, interacting with locals and eating. Really enjoyed this story and look forward to more. Thanks.

    Love your take on this, focusing on what is usually unseen. It inspires me to pay more attention to the sidelines as well when I visit famous places. Taj Mahal is lovely, but I would very much like to see its neighbors too! Can’t wait to be in India next year 🙂

    I love the shot of the potato seller. He looks like royalty. A king on a throne of spuds.

      @Evan: ha ha… I LOVE the way you describe it; come to think of it, he’s kinda got that air of uh… potato royalty. 😉

    I am going to go in Indonesia I would directly go to Taj Mahal. It is really nice and beautiful landmark. I wish I could see Taj Mahal personally.

    Absolutely loved this post! You hit the nail on the head: being in the shadows of the Taj does not diminish the loveliness of the Taj Ganj.

      @Charu: Thanks. No, being in the shadows definitely doesn’t diminish it’s loveliness. Each has its unique presence. =-)
