Yesterday, we visited the extraordinary Taj Mahal in Agra, which overlooks the River Ganjes is quite honestly even more beautiful in person than I could have imagined! Built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan as a loving gesture for his wife who sadly died when giving birth before construction was completed, it now houses their tomb.
To consider this was all done by hand is really hard to get your head around! It’s absolutely flawless, with perfect symmetry everywhere you look!
Had to be done.
We’re now heading back up to Delhi where we’ll be catching the overnight train 9 hours all the way up to Palampur, and have stopped for lunch on the way where I found this
Just like my sister and I had together in the Thali Dahl in Bristol just before I left!
It was delicious! I just wish she had been here to enjoy it with me.
I also managed to find somewhere to stop and get some post out!
Keep an eye on your doormat!
