Some called it the most beautful building ever built. Legend has it that the sun and the moon shed a tear when it was finished. No visit to India can be complete without a visit to the Taj Mahal.
It was another hot day. We have gone as far as splurging on a room with AC. We put it off as long as we could have, but eventually we did have to come out of our room and go see the Taj Mahal. The heat made us regret it, and we did consder going back to the room. However, it would have been the epitome of laziness to not see the Taj Mahal, located half a kilometer away from our hotel, on account of the weather.
The Taj Mahal is quite an impressive structure. It is huge, white, and imposing. It is pleasant on the eye. The heat was pouring out of the sky and dripping down our faces and backs. Hiding in the shadows did not offer too much relief, so as soon as we saw this massive tombs from all angles we retreated back to the comfort of our air conditioned room.
