The city of Agra is best known as the home of the Taj Mahal, an iconic figure on the Indian skyline, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, and widely regarded as the most beautiful man-made structure ever built. Chances are, a visit to the Taj Mahal is on most people’s bucket lists. Former Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan had this beauty built as a mausoleum for his most favored wife, Mumtaz Mahal, after she died in childbirth. The story ventures into myth after construction was finished—it is rumored that Shah Jahan had all its builders’ hands cut off so they could never create anything as beautiful. Two red sandstone buildings flank the mausoleum to its east and west, a guesthouse called Mihman Khana and a Mosque—respectively. For a hallowed hall for the departed, this man-made wonder is always teeming with life. Somewhere in the millions of people come from all over the world all-year round flock to the Taj Mahal. A tour of its grounds has no rival, but a few alternative vantage points are in-air on the Air Safari, by the river on the Taj Yamuna View Point, or on a clear day right across the waters in the Mehtab Bagh.

Shame it was friggin raining and fogging when we attempted to Taipei 101 ourselves. So we ended up eating and milktea-ing our misery away. I got to say, the tower was so magical at night. It was so pretty. A little FYI: back in 2004, this building was the tallest in the world that it made the Guinness World Record until Burj Khalifa broke its reign.
