Well, what can you say about the Taj Mahal except WOW!!! We left at 6:15 in order to see it at dawn (well, near dawn) For ecological reasons, we transferred to an electric bus to go the last bit. The Taj Mahal took 22 years to build and 20,000 workers and what a work of art it is. We had our pictures made from several angles :-) And the hype is right. As the sun rises, the Taj changes. Made of white marble it just gleams. Most everyone has seen pictures of the Taj but they are always from far away. When you get up close and personal the majesty really comes through. Magnificient!!! Awe-inspiring and jaw dropping beauty.
