Over the weekend we went to see the Taj Mahal in Agra. Agra is only 120 miles south of Delhi but the drive takes an insufferable five hours each way. When traffic is not at a standstill it is a white-knuckle car chase. Agra itself is dirty, crowded, and has few redeeming qualities. In spite of all this, the Taj Mahal is every bit as impressive as its reputation and well worth the visit. After all, this is considered to be the most magnificent architectural achievement of all humanity.
We left our hotel before dawn to beat the crowds and were rewarded with a spectacular sunrise. The light on the white marble changed with each moment as the sun climbed.
