It was by chance that we ended up in Agra to celebrate our ten years together.
So we agreed that a visit to the Taj Mahal on our tenth anniversary would make a good celebration!
We woke up at 5am to be at the entrance at 6am. We are not early birds but the motivation to see the place in its pure essence with less tourists was enough. When the gates open, we finally arrived in front of the monument we had seen so many times in pictures.
Usually we don’t like to see pictures of the places we are about to visit. But one cannot avoid pictures of the Taj Mahal. We were a bit afraid to be disappointed. But truly no picture can reveal the beauty of the Taj Mahal. Delicately wrapped in the pinkish morning light, it was stunning! We sat in front of it, appreciating every moment of its contemplation.
