There are places one should visit at least once in his lifetime. Like the Grand Canyon or the Taj Mahal. The difference is that the Taj is made by men.

There are many fantastic examples of what nature is capable of. You can find them anywhere in the world. Impressive mountains, volcanos, canyons, glaciers, deserts, waterfalls, fjords, … There is hardly a country in the world without at least one natural wonder. Far less countries have man-made wonders. India might be a poor country but it has many and the Taj Mahal is the most iconic of them all.

But before I start to talk about the how the Taj Mahal works its magic on every visitor I have to mention one thing. To get there is no fun. Agra is an ugly city, the traffic is even madder than in the rest of India the closer you get to the entry gate the worse it gets.

To safe the Taj Mahal from pollution it is not allowed to go straight there with car, bus or motorcycle but – worry not – you don’t have to walk. There is a myriad of electric three-wheelers, rickshaws, horse- and even camel-drawn coaches to get you there. Sounds convenient but the problem is that as soon as you enter the parking lot your car is surrounded by three-wheelers. It’s almost scary to leave the car. What makes things worse…
