Taj Mahal - Wonders of Incredible
Taj Mahal of India - the
epitome of love, a monument of immeasurable beauty. The beauty of
this magnificent monument is such that it is beyond the scope of
words. 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. The very
first sight of the Taj Mahal, the epitome of love and romance leaves
Climate and Location of Agra
Taj Mahal is located in the city of Agra, one of the most powerful
cities in the medieval world. Agra is a part of the state of Uttar
Pradesh, in the northern region of India. It is a part of the great
northern plains and is situated on the west bank of river the Yamuna.
Agra is 204 km south of Delhi. The climate of Agra is extreme and
tropical. Summers are extremely hot and the maximum temperature can be
as high as 45 degree Celsius, while winters are cold and foggy.
Agra - Beyond Taj
The cycle-rickshaw is the best way of getting about Agra. Its smooth
gliding motion and leisurely rate of progress are in keeping with the
pace of life in this old world city. The rickshaw-boy jungles his way
through the crowded bazaars, exchanging insults with tonga-drivers,
pedestrians and other cyclists; but once on the broad Mall or Taj
Road, his curses change to a carefree song and he freewheels along the
tree-lined avenues. Old colonial style bungalows still stand in large
compounds shaded by Peepal.
Best Time to Visit Taj Mahal
To truly appreciate the Taj Mahal and encapsulate its various moods,
we suggest that you spend at least one full day in Agra and view this
dream in marble at different times of the day - for the Taj transforms
its character with the changing light.
Taj Mahal in the Morning
The glory of the monument is strangely undiminished by the crowds of
tourists who visit each day, as small and insignificant as ants in
the face of this immense and captivating monument. That said, the
Taj is at its most alluring in the relative quiet of early morning,
shrouded in mists and bathed with a soft red glow. As its vast
marble surfaces fall into shadow or reflect the sun, its colour
changes, from soft grey and yellow to pearly cream and dazzling
white; it's well worth visiting at different times.
Beauty of Taj Mahal during Day
Dawn is a magical time when it's virtually deserted and the first
rays of the sun light up the Taj. In the afternoon, the Taj is a
dazzling spectacle in white, and in the evening the Taj dons the
orange glow of the setting sun.
The Taj Mahal shows a different aspect of beauty at different times
of the day. The sight of the Taj awash with the subtle pinks of dawn
is an unforgettable sight.
Taj Mahal at Sunset
Sunsets stain the Taj an exotic shade of orange. But nothing beats
the poignant beauty of the Taj seen when the cool white marble is
bathed in the soft silver light of the moon. Even in the bright
light of the day, this wonder of the world shines with an
Try arriving just as it opens or is about to close. A few minutes
alone in the perpetually echoing inner sanctum will reward you far
more than several hours spent on a guided tour.
