A couple friends and I headed off to Agra on Saturday to cross the Taj Mahal off our India bucket lists! It's an incredibly beautiful masterpiece, but the overall experience was overwhelming and chaotic. I tend to gravitate towards hidden gems or natural beauty, and so viewing the Taj along with thousands of other people diluted the experience a little. Either way, I'm glad I've seen one of the world wonders (or as many tourist shirts like to claim - man's greatest erection for a woman). The architecture is phenomenally symmetrical, but it's the detail in the marble that really stands out. These pictures are mostly for you Mom!
