Well, visiting tourist attractions is something that I love because I am a travel freak.

What this attraction is? and When and why you visited there?
Recently, I paid a visit to the Taj Mahal with my family as summer vacations were on, and I cannot express in words how beautiful this place is. Taj Mahal is undoubtedly the world’s most visited place as it is one of the seven wonders of the world.

Where it is located?
It is in the city of Agra, which is approximately 400 kilometres from my hometown, and when we visited there.

And did you like it?
I was amazed to see the beauty of this monument. Taj Mahal was actually built by the emperor Shah Jahan in remembrance of her beloved wife, Mumtaz. It is an amazing monument, and it reflects the amazing architecture of the Mughals of that time.

It’s a massive building, and if you read about the facts and figures of this building, you would be amazed because even with today’s technology.

The construction of such a building is almost impossible. The entire building is made up of white marble, which looks so beautiful, and with daylight, it changes its color. The best part is that this monument is built on the bank of Yamuna.

For that reason, one can also see the reflection of the Taj Mahal in the Yamuna, which makes it even more beautiful, especially in the moonlight.

Well, I visited there with my family, and as expectation, there were thousands of tourists, and most of them were foreign tourists from different countries. Millions of tourists each year visit this place, and it plays a wonderful role in boosting and promoting tourism in the country.

Well, we clicked numerous photographs of this monument, and I also took some selfies with the foreigners there, welcomed them and tried to educate them about the history of this place as per my knowledge.

Overall, the visit to this historical monument was just beyond our expectation and I recommend everyone who hasn’t visit Taj Mahal yet, must visit it once in lifetime.
