  Taj Mahal, Agra
by PeetTheEngineer

This marvelous building is actually the tomb for the wife of emperor Mumtaj Mahal. It is probably one of the most elegant structures in the world using all possible methodes to impress the visitor.

Did you know for example that the two front pillars are slightly higher than the rear pillars ? This is actually cheating the eyes so that the building seems to bigger than it actually is !

Address: Agra
Directions: Visit from New Delhi by train. This is the better option than the coach or taxi tours !
