Taj Mahal Travels

I took so many photos when I traveled to Agra and visited the Taj.  Here are my favs:

Only 2 kilometers away, so exciting!
Our first glimpse of  the Taj walking through the gates
The iconic view
Gettin' closer ...
Even closer you can see the absolutely exquisite designs
The surrounding pillars are built to fall outwards (not inwards) in case of an earthquake, minimizing the chance of damaging the temple
One of the lesser famous temples inside the gates
A unique view of one of the side gates

Attention to detail? YES!
