  Security Check, Taj Mahal, Agra
by Canadienne

This photo is from the security gates at the Taj Mahal complex, but I've also encountered security checks in a few other temples and sites in the country.

It's worth noting that cell phones, flashlights, walkmans/Discmans, food, and even pens will result in a request to check them at a cloak room. I've never had a problem with theft from any cloakroom, but items of irreplaceable value should always be left at home.

The security checks for flights within the country were mixed ~ I had to remove batteries from my cameras & alarm clock before one flight, but not before the next.
