Go to Agra and visit the Taj Mahal.
The Taj Mahal was built by Emperor Shah Jahan, in memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal in 1652.
The tomb is built of pure marble and is considered to be one of the seven wonders of the world.
Favorite thing: You might want to finish your trip through India with some relaxing days. Choose Goa for some days of relaxation ...
You have to make a trip to AGRA and visit TAJ MAHAL.
I am sure you have already seen it on so many pictures but you will never forget the impression when you see it in real !
Favorite thing: A portrait of (Mumtaz Mahal) the lucky wife but unlucky to have not lived with her husband till a ripe old age.What a pity!
