    Hi Folks,

    Finally, I got myself in to visiting this wonder lying in my very own backyard (well, almost , at 1000 kms away from Bombay / Mumbai), on the 3 Feb 2007.

    That place is incredibly beautiful!

    Cheers,
    Sid!

    PS: Photos can never convey the real beauty of the location... Seeing is believing!

    nice one, Siddhartha.. Sure looks grand. It's hard to imagine how beautiful it is by merely looking at a photo. Those people right at the foot of the Taj Mahal appear so miniscule !!

    It was the thermos with a very hot tea. But in that situation it could have been called a "summer-dressed-person-while-the-temperature-was-minus-fifteen-degrees" prize.

    The Taj Mahal is on my "must see" waiting list. Don't know when I'll be visiting it, but hopefully rather soon than later.

    While I did visit the Agra Fort, Fatehpur Sikri was unfortunately not on the guided tour. I guess, this place is one that I sorely missed - hearing from the reactions of people around me.

    The tour operator instead chose to take us to Mathura and Vrindavan. I have nothing against these places, but would have preferred Fatehpur Sikri anyday.

    (At the Mathura Temple, the security guards didnt let me in on attempt 1 because they said that my rucksack was too big , this in spite of the fact that I had deposited my cameras, cellphone et al. Undeterred, when I made a second attempt, they searched me thoroughly - if you know what I mean , and on searching my bag found a swiss knife and a USB stick. They didn't recognize / understand the knife, and also didn't understand what the USB stick does and therefore didn't let me in again. )

    Yeah, I envy Delhi-ites for their great location and scenic places!

    I guess, as far as historical significance and beauty goes, Bombay diminishes in comparison. Fortunately, we have the film industry and the beach - else, there would have been a little more than crowded trains, and a population of 15 mn to be proud of.

    Seeing photos posted by Kiran earlier, I also wished to visit Jaisalmer, but that would be in the direction opposite to Delhi (from Udaipur) and I had to leave it for later - Delhi and Agra being on my priorities for this trip.

    It was wonderful. I always complained of having seen too little of North India, and with this trip, I can finally claim to have seen a little.

    Need to come back...

    Here is a pic of mine at the Qutb-Minar (the world's tallest brick structure standing and 800 years old) in Delhi...



    And here is a better photo of the Qutb-Minar, (better because it is one taken by me, and importantly, without me in it )...

    Oh, that shirt is a gift from some software company during the last TechEd I visited in Barcelona.

    Better not decipher... It makes no sense. People try hard reading it nevertheless, trying to figure out what the company is saying.

    Tourists.

    Taj Mahal is visited by over 3 Million people, every year.

    Yes, you should!

    Looking at photos, I always thought that I'd seen it in one way or another (it must after all be one of the most photographed monuments), but when I entered the complex, I was truly spellbound.

    The word 'beautiful' does no justice to it...
