So the adventure still continues...now in the misterious city of Agra, once we arrived to our hotel and left the stress behind we decided to go to have some apperitives at McDonalds,(I know is not a good idea having a McDonalds when you have paneer and butter naan around the city) but the place was in front of us, calling us, tempting us !!!!
Then we heard drums and fireworks and a wedding parade suddenly appeared, with a lot of people dancing ad smiling! And everyone (I guess) was invited!! So we accepted the invitation to fun! And also to eat a lot!
For a minute I thought that I was in Mexico! The weddings here are actually huge (around 300 persons) so I was swimming in a sea of colors, food and people!
The people of the wedding was so excited to have us there!! And the place was amazingly decorated! A lot of people walked by the catwalk and they all looked amazing!
So the very next morning we woke up at 6 am to be at taj at 7 am! It was so foggy and there was already a few people testy to drive us to the magical place called Taj MahalThe Taj Mahal"crown of palaces" is a white marble mausoleum located in Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India. It was built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal. The Taj Mahal is widely recognized as "the jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world's heritage.
Once you enter you can perceive a change in the atmosphere, like your crossing the line to another dimension , like traveling on time (goosebumps) and when you cross the door suddenly at the distance seems to appear a living legend
The environment was just perfect to be there, quiet, reflexive and calm.
The place was just magic! The perfect place to be and have a self conversation and meditate.
The exterior decorations of the Taj Mahal are among the finest in Mughal architecture. As the surface area changes the decorations are refined proportionally. The tomb is the central focus of the entire complex of the Taj Mahal. This large, white marble structure stands on a square plinth and consists of a symmetrical building with an iwan (an arch-shaped doorway) topped by a large dome and finial. Like most Mughal tombs, the basic elements are Persian in origin.
It was the cool one...
The serious one...
And the typical one...
And at last the postcard for me and for my soul. If I could describe this place , I would say that is a longlasting love masterpiece, a monument that remember us that love can be eternal and live trough generations. Wow!!
So after that incredible view we went back to our home now, ludhiana, but with a great experienced lived and with a moment that will last forever.
Thank you Agra!! See you soon or in the other life.
