Hey guys!Happy winters.Hope you guys are doing fine…me too.So,here is the another part of my trip to Taj Mahal.
After spending some good time to our mysterious place,we took leave from there & started our journey towards our main destination.We took yamuna expressway.On our way,we had our lunch at Quila(restaurent).Finally,we reached agra.We bought tickets & entered into the main area of Taj Mahal.
About Taj Mahal-
About the history of Taj Mahal ,i have told you in part-1.Now about TajMahal,it comes an area of 42 acres in total.The entire Taj complex consists of five major constituents,namely-•main gateway •gardens•mosque•rest house & • main mausoleum(Rauza).
The main tomb of Taj Mahal stands on a square platform that was raised 50meter above the river bank.The four minarets on each corner of this square are detached.The western side of the main tomb has the mosque & on the eastern side is the rest house.
A shadowy burial crypt inside the Taj Mahal houses the tombs of Mumtaz Mahal & Shah Jahan himself who was buried there after he died.Above these tombs is the main chamber that has the false tomb.Calligraphic inscriptions of the ninety nine names of Allah can also be found on the sides of actual tomb of Mumtaz Mahal.
Out of the total area of 580 meter,the garden alone cover 300meter.
Timing to visit the Taj Mahal-
So readers,this is very important to know the timing of the place where you are going,to make your journey more comfortable.
•Taj Mahal is open from sunrise to sunset during normal operating days.
•Taj Mahal is closed on fridays for general viewing & is opened on friday afternoon only for those who have to attend prayers at the Taj Mosque.

We visited the TajMahal thoroughly.Many tourists were there including foreigners.They were enjoying their trip & taking pictures.We also took many pictures.Because you can not hold yourself by not capturing these beautiful moments spend with the Taj.
There were many small small counters of icecreams & snacks out side the Taj diameter.We ate our dinner in restaurent named Taj near the TajMahal.
So this is how once again i visited this place,gracefully.It just that whenever i look at it(TajMahal) i can not take my eyes off.I just fall in love with TajMahal again & again.
