My first visit to Taj Mahal was when I was 12. At that time Taj Mahal was not as one of seven wonders of the world. But now I am back after a while and visited Taj Mahal as the seven wonders of the world. How amazing is that?
I am all grown up and so does everything in this city which we call as Agra where Taj Mahal is situated. Before reaching there I was thinking Agra exactly same the way it was before. I was so so so wrong. The city is bigger, better, greener and easily connected. We drove from New Delhi to Agra via Taj express highway it took us approximate 3 hours to reach there. You can go by train, bus or cab. Make sure you hire a commercially registered taxi.
The Taj Mahal is open from sunrise to sunset.
The brief synthesis about the Taj Mahal, which is a proud symbol of India.
Taj Mahal was built in 1648 AD by Shah Jahan in the memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal. That’s why this is taken as a love symbol across the world. Its recognized architectonic beauty has a rhythmic combination of solids and voids, concave and convex and light, shadow; such as arches and domes further increases the aesthetic aspect.
The best month to visit Taj Mahal is August or September but I visited in June and I couldn’t handle the 46 degrees Celsius temperature that day.
To keep myself cool, cozy and trendy I wore a long white dress from Mango. Which is super soft and the thread work in the front has been just amazing. This dress is so flowy that it helped me from the heats. I have been to other shops for the dresses, but couldn’t find anything suitable for this place.
I tried to give indo-western look to my shoot so I wore big red ‘Bindi’ which is a typical symbol of Indian women. Normally Bindi is worn by married Hindu women but now as time has change young girls started wearing this before marriages. They come in various size, shape and colors.
I hope some of you must be planning for Taj Mahal and why not? Lately Kate Middleton and Prince William paid a visit then why not you? If you are heading towards north of India now you know which place is a must visit. I would suggest a day visit is good for the Taj Mahal.
