Back to the Future - Part 1

First stop : Agra
The first stop was Akbar's tomb.I didnt get down and had to be content with this pic shot from the car.Pics below - First look at the Taj
After we got in, the first views of the Taj. Indeed a spectacle.
Now, here is when our guides gave us some unofficial info.. The Taj was actually a temple which was later on converted. Proof of this is from the pic below.
Some more : The pillar you see doesnt have the 8 sides as you think. Its optical illusion. In real , this pillar has only 3 sides. The lines are drawn in such a way that they create an illusion. Amazing stuff indeed.

To be contd....
