Memories of the Taj Mahal
As you can see from my profile picture I visited the Taj Mahal with my husband. It was part of The Golden Triangle Tour which we did while we stayed in Candolim and I will post later. The first visit was at night to see the sun go down which was a sight to see as we stood on the other side of the river. We had a wonderful view of the whole building and it is some size.
The best was yet to come we arrived at 6am in the morning to see the sunrise, and beat the crowds, you just had to be there, the sight of the sun coming up over the Taj was brilliant. To see this shrine, because that is what it is, you go through a huge gate and it is there in front of you in all its magnificence. I stood there and thought what is all the fuss about its just another marble monument inlayed with precious stones and carvings and then it hits you. Call it what you will but there was this aura a feeling about the place, its something that you cannot
describe that makes it breathtaking. We toured the shrine and the gardens and had the usual photos take on what has become known as Diana‘s Seat only I was not alone I had my wonderful husband with me to make it a day to remember.

Well doen Maureen. Great pictures and your fascination with the place shines through with every word.

Looking at these pictures reminded me of my first visit to India. They brought back lovely memories. however my abiding memory of india will be the Golden Temple at Amritsar.
