No visit to India, let alone Agra is complete without visiting the worlds most amazing monument to love, the Taj Mahal.

We visited the Taj Mahal for sunrise and this is a great time to go as for the first few moments you really feel like you have the place to yourself.

This is the most mesmerizing and beautiful building we have ever seen, it almost does not seem real when you first glimpse it especially against the hazy morning sky. The marble has a translucent property which mean the Taj Mahal changes colour and reacts to the light around it. When the sun did finally rise it was nice to see the marble take on more of a yellow hue.

As we were up really early we also had time to explore the Baby Taj across the river but built before the Taj and the impressive Agra Fort.
