Felt like a celebrity as all the local teenagers wanted pictures of us rather than the Taj!

“What hasn't been said”
Reviewed 5 May 2012

The initial highlight of a charity cycle ride from Agra to Jaipur was a visit to the Taj Mahal. It's everything you expect it to be from the photographs that are embedded into most people's minds, but they don't really give the close up awareness of how intricate the designs on the marble are. We found that many locals, from individuals to groups on school visits, want to have their photograph taken with Western tourists, so take the opportunity to engage and ask their views on matters.

“Exceeded expectations”
Reviewed 5 May 2012

This has got to be the most beautiful building in the world. From the amazing symmetry of the architecture to the colours of the inlay work it has to be seen to be believed. Put it on your bucket list!
