Agra

INDIA | Sunday, 16 May 2010 | Views [584]

It's all about the Taj Mahal. When you first walk through the gate and see it it almost looks flat. Like you were on a movie set. I went there at about 6:00am to dodge the crowds. There were still plenty of people there, but I didn't have to wait too long to get in.

When you get close you realise how amazing the detail is. You have to take your shoes off when you walk around the actual building, and a lot of the inside areas were closed off. It is amazing to see though. NOthing is painted on. All the patterns are either carved out of the white marble or other coloured stones are cut into and embedded into the strucutre.

After that I went to Agra fort. But I'd already seen what I came for.

8:30pm I caught a train overnight to Varanasi.
