I decided to forget all travel for some time and enjoy the beauty of Mumtaz Mahal’s monument built by Shajahan with the help of most skilled Indian engineers of his time.I saw many people including foreigners going towards the entrance of Taj mahal and I also became one of them.

Our delhi/agra sojourn got over in no time. It was back to good ole Mumbai and to the grind. I must mention here that even though it was so hot the kids enjoyed themselves and there were no complaints about the heat. It’s important to remember and drink water continuously in that heat even if you do or don’t feel thirsty as one can easily get dehydrated.
For me, irrespective of cast, creed, profession, country, state, bachelor, singular, male, female, chimp, dog, missile, moron, sane, saint, criminal, judge, kid, teenager, president, popper there are only two breeds of people in this world those who have seen the TAJ and those who have not!!
The most enduring monument to love, built by the fifth Mughal emperor as the final resting place for beloved Mumtaj Mahal is at threat these days. The monument after saving its life from deadly clutches of Taj Corridor , countless factories in its vicinity is ultimately falling to the might of world power.
Shopping in Rajasthan is very enticing. What with all the handlooms, artefacts ethnic wear and jewellery- all invite you to splurge. But one should be cautious while spending as the sellers are very) and if you do not have proper knowledge you would be spending Rs. 100/- for a Rs. 10/-. But if you have a n agent with you then nothing stops you! I would say 3 cheers for Rajasthan! It is a perfect place for the Tourism board to invest and promote as a destination India to foreigners!!!
I’ve always admired the Rajasthani culture. The People, the garments, the festivals and everything. One thing which comes into my mind when I think of Rajasthan is Royalty, the lovely palaces and their grandeur. We were on a trip to Raj for 12 nights and 13 days in the month of April. It is actually enough if you want to just move around Rajasthan.
One of the most vibrant and colorful cities of India is Jaipur. Famous for its strikingly beautiful culture, forts, palaces, and lakes the city basks in the glory of a rich and eventful past. Jaipur is city which is made all the more attractive by the pink wash that most buildings are periodically given.
Nahargarh is the place which attractd me the most!May be because of it’s myths like in the Durg cafe(cafe of nahargarh)ghosts can be seen with naked eyes after the sunset or let it be the Mayor’s confrence in which an inviable soul slapped one of the mayor.Let it be any reason, but the place is really haunting!
