India 2011 - Day 9 - arriving in Agra
View from our room.
The imposing Red Fort of Agra, comprising fairy tale palaces, two beautiful mosques, audience halls, pavilions, courtyards, and gardens all surrounded by a massive wall, a moat, and yet another wall. A creative, architectural, and strategic masterpiece, the Fort is protected as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
A glimpse of the Taj Mahal.
He supposedly was found dead with his eyes towards the Taj Mahal, the memorial he had built for his beloved wife.
A stop on the way back to the hotel. Some of us needed to use the ATM.
Our room is somewhere in the middle.
