discover hidden myths, taste diverse food and sleep below a sky full of shooting stars and galaxies every night
People who are looking forward to enjoying the one day trip to Agra can choose the Gatimaan express train. Traveling on this train will help the tourist to have a joyful and safe journey like never before. Most people have heard of the Taj Mahal, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, but few people know why it was first built.

In 1631, Mumtaz Mahal, wife of Shah Jahan, passed away. Shah Jahan was distraught and commissioned the building of an enormous, ivory-white marble shrine on the south bank of the Yamuna River — the Taj Mahal. The tribute to his lost love took 22 years to build and he was buried beside her after his death.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the architecture of the mausoleum is awe-inspiring, with precious and semi-precious stones set in the marble. The Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore described the Taj Mahal as the teardrop on the cheek of time and it serves as a reminder of how enduring love can be.

Journey through Gatiman Express seems very fast, in just 12 hours you can visit the whole city. Very interesting service. I wish we have such service in our country. By the way I love India and I want to go there one day and visit Taj Mahal and different beautiful places.

Michael said...

It seems a jam-packed IT. I might have to refer to this in the future if we will visit India too.

Joanna said...

This tour sounds perfect for people who don't have a lot of time in India. I spent 3 days in Agra and took my time to visit all these attractions and find out the stories. I really loved Agra Fort and the Mehtab Gardens.
