Unusually holiday!!!

Hi everybody!!
How I wrote in the last publication,this time I will be writing about Agra. In my opinion Agra is the famoused city in India. Agra, city on the banks of the Yamuna River in Uttar Pradesh,is home of the Taj Mahal, one of the seven wonders of the modern world and surely the most romantic gift an emperor could build for his wife. When you are in India, a tour to the Taj Mahal is one of the best ways to make your Indian holiday a memorable experience. Delhi is the most convenient point to start your journey to Taj Mahal. The Taj Mahal Agra is about 220 km from Delhi and is well connected by air, rail and road.It takes about half hour to reach Taj Mahal if you are taking a flight from Delhi.By train it takes a little over one hour and by road you can reach the city of Taj Mahal in over two hours. In fact road transport and the rails are the best way to get a feel of India.Taj Mahal-the 17th century marvel-is really beautiful and it's a wonderful feeling to watch the symbol of love unfold with your eyes. As you watch the pillars, minarets, dome, the lawns, the mosques on each side and floral motifs on its wall; you realize why the Taj Mahal is so talked and written about.The moment you enter the gate, built in red stone, the first thing you can see is the dome of the Taj Mahal built in white marble. As your eyes get accustomed to the beauty of the white marble you notice the planned wonders that are sprinkled around. Yes, the four lush green gardens with waterways and a pool at the centre. The gardens are believed to be modelled along the Char Bag style of Persia (Iran).The main structure can simply be described as poetry in stone. Inside the mausoleum is the grave of Mumtaz Mahal with 99 names of Allah inscribed on it. The floral motifs on the walls and the jali work offer a wonderful sight. Your Taj Mahal tour is incomplete without a visit to the mosques on the each side of the Taj Mahal and the four minarets that surround it.If you always wondered how Taj Mahal looks in moonlight nights, now can you visit Taj Mahal during nights as well.All you have to do to see Taj Mahal during the night is to book your ticket 24 hours in advance. So enjoy your tours to Agra with Taj Mahal Agra. This journey can be really amazing, you can believe me.
Bye bye-next week!!!
