The Journey to The Taj Mahal

December 13th, 2013 6:01 am

Tourists who haven’t set foot in India dream to be here one day and tourists who have been here know what haunting beauty is all about. Admired worldwide as a symbol of love and beauty this beautiful Mausoleum seems like a dream woven in marble on a star studded night. Built by Shah Jahan for his lady love and wife Mumtaz Mahal the monument tells a tale of love, bereavement and mystery. Located on the banks of the Yamuna River this architectural marvel was constructed in marble and semi precious stones which were imported from China and Italy. A mere four hours drive from Delhi will take you to Agra. If you are venturing on a Taj Mahal Tour remember to include Agra Fort, Itmad-ud-Daullah’s Tomb, Chini Ka Rauza and Sikandra as well to get an overall picture about Mughal architecture and Era. For a more endearing experience also visit the derelict town of Fatehpur Sikri enroute.

Taj Mahal Tour commences with your touching Delhi. Make headway right away so as to reach fast and begin exploring early enough. Keep two days in hand for a thorough Taj Mahal Tour.After you reachAgra don’t go to the Taj Mahal right away. Rather take your time to know this old city with its narrow lanes and Mughlai cuisine. Check out some of the handcrafted items on sale by the road. Strike a conversation with a local and know the present scenario of Agra. That’s how a real traveler should travel.

Next day get up early in the morning to go to the Taj Mahal. A careful study of the architecture tells you that the Taj blends Hindu architecture and patterns along with Mughal designs and arches. The red lotus which is seen in Taj Mahal is actually a symbol of Brahma while the trident that features several times in the inner sanctuary of the tomb is a symbol of Shiva. If we keep in mind that Shah Jahan was a liberal ruler who was keener towards humanity in general rather than towards either Hindus or Muslims, everything falls into place. The inner chambers of the Taj are carved and designed with semi precious stones while the exterior facade is a study in geometrical patterns and symmetry.It is said that the Taj looks different in the early rays of the sun, in the afternoon and in the night.

Africa? Or any other destination requires one to get proper information of a particular country and on different tour packages offered.

There are one million and one tour companies on the internet and one would get confused as to which one to use for their yearned or most hoped for vacation.

Travel Guide Information

Travel documents: When travelling abroad, one of the first and most important things you will need to do is make sure that your travel documents are in order. Passports are usually valid for 10 years, so if you already have one, make sure that it is still good-to-go. If you do not have one, check out this guide on how to apply for it. The process takes some time, so make sure you plan accordingly. You may also need a Visa to enter your country of choice, but each destination has a different policy, so best you do your research.

Your Itinerary: Finalising your travel itinerary is one of the more exciting parts of your planning. Now that you know where you’re going and what you’ll be seeing, print out a copy and leave it at home. Should something happen whilst you’re away, someone will at least have an idea of your whereabouts and how to contact you.

Insurance: While planning your trip, remember to chat to your insurance company. Find out if your policy applies in foreign ground and if not, make sure you get it amended.

Vaccines: The most important thing you need to do, regardless of where you are, is look after your health. Depending on where you’re traveling to, you might or might not need vaccinations and/or do a full medical. Chat to your doctor or visit a travel clinic well in advance to find out if you’ll need anything done prior to your trip and if so, how you should go about it. Do NOT forget to do this.

Stranger danger: Never agree to carry a package or bag for a stranger. You might be trying to help but at the end of the day you might be the one having to deal with boarder control. Never leave luggage unattended, we cannot stress this enough. Apart from theft, it is so easy for someone to slip something into your bag if it’s left on its own.

Your diet: You’ve touched down and everything is amazing. Keep it that way by maintaining a balanced diet and stick to what you know. Some foreign food may not agree with you, so first find out what you are eating and remember to drink lots of water, bearing in mind that bottled is often best, as not all places in the world are lucky enough as us to have drinkable tap water.
