“The epitome of love”, “a monument of immeasurable beauty” that stands majestically on the banks of River Yamuna. The thoughts that come into the mind while watching the Taj Mahal of Agra is not just its phenomenal beauty, but the immense love which was the reason behind its construction. Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan got this monument constructed in the memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal, with whom he fell in love at the first sight.
Late afternoon drive back to Delhi.
