The Taj Mahal…

By 7.00am, the queue was already more than a 100 metres long...!!

Do women get in cheaper then... Hand me a sari...!!

Once inside the complex, you pass through this the main gate to the Taj Mahal...

Misty morning first glance... I could hardly believe I was finally there...!!

It's bigger than you think...!!

Even this early in the morning, the Taj is thronged by hundreds of visitors...

GB makes it to the Taj Mahal...!! Valentine's Day 2011...

I had no idea how huge it is until I got closer to the Taj itself...

Snazzy shoe covers...!!

Looking back over the gardens to the entrance in the distance...

Sunrise over the Taj Mosque...

View from the Eastern corner....

One of the massive alcoves on the western wall...

The sun bursts through the early morning mist, bathing the Taj Mahal in bright light...

The place to be on Valentine's Day...!! Altogether now.... "Aaahh, sweet...!!"

My final view of a place I could never forget...!!

Gate guard, outside the Taj Mahal...

There are a number of ways of getting to the site...!!

This post comes to you from here...!!

Where the cups are barely big enough to fit the teaspoon...!!
