“T” for Taj Mahal

Dec 1, 2010 Author: bluegreen butterfly | Filed under: India, Photography, Travels

Taj Mahal The Taj Mahal, monument of love. It is a very impressive work of art with a grand story behind it. We entered the compound’ at 8:30 in the cold morning, and we were out by about 10:30 A.M. And I realized, ‘what’s the hurry?, the “moon is full”! which also makes a very nice view at night by the way 😀

At the Taj

A photo of us at the Taj Mahal one chilly early morning in December last year. Our tour guide took this photo. It was a wonderful experience. Isn’t it lovely?

Frontier trivia of the day:

There are calligraphies everywhere in the Taj Mahal compounds. As we enter through the gate of the Taj, there is one that says, “O Soul, thou art at rest. Return to the Lord at peace with Him, and He at peace with you.”

Frontier trivia of the day:

Poor children in India begin working at a very young and tender age. Children are often exploited and deprived of their rights in India, and until further measures are taken in the matter of tackling the problem of child labour, many Indian children will continue to live in poverty. (

Wordless Wednesday: Unveiling her face

Leaving India

Jan 10, 2008 Author: admin | Filed under: Personal, Travels

By now I have four days left before I leave for Singapore-Davao. My vacation and travels so far are really worth it. I have seen many beautiful and unforgettable places and people. And what is important is that we enjoyed our time together, hubby and I. I am not yet done though, seeing the Taj Mahal, Baby Taj, and the Agra Fort, and riding a camel and elephant were almost enough. Tomorrow and the next day I will be touring around the city of 20 million people, Mumbai, with hubby’s driver as tour guide also. See you around.
