Some photos from Agra

18 Sep

Hey all, here are some of the better photos from our visit to Agra. It is a crazy touristy place with lots of touts, sellers, beggars, etc. , but we handled it for 2.5 days. More than likely a day and a half too long. 🙂

First a view of the Taj Mahal from Agra Fort, yet another 15th century fort in India which looks much like the Red Fort in Delhi. The Fort and the Taj are located on the banks of the Yamuna River which served as a natural air conditioner for both sites.

Here is a photo of some inlaid stone, cork and marble from the “Baby Taj” I thought that this would make a great desktop background.

And finally, yet another view of the Taj Mahal from Mehtab Bagh. You can see a video in the last post, but this picture was so beautiful, I couldn’t pass up posting it.

Much love to everyone, we’re in Varanasi now and both have a little cold- we’ll begin exploring in the next day or so..
