” The Taj Mahal meaning Crown of the Palace. Is an ivory-white marble mausoleum on the south bank of the Yamuna river in the Indian city of Agra. It was commissioned in 1632 by the Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan (reigned 1628–1658), to house the tomb of his favourite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. The tomb is the centrepiece of a 17-hectare (42-acre) complex, which includes a mosque and a guest house, and is set in formal gardens bounded on three sides by a crenellated wall “
There are no words to describe how unbelievably breathtaking the Taj Mahal is, I am so in love with India.
This is the reason why I love my job so much and feel really blessed that I am doing the job that I really enjoy and get to see another amazing place in the world.
Let me tell you how tough it was for us before we got to see The Taj Mahal because we only had 24 hours layover.
SO, we worked on a night flight from London Heathrow to New Delhi. We took off at 22:00 pm and we landed at New Delhi at 11:00 am, India is 4 hours and 30 minutes ahead of united Kingdom. The flight time was around 8 – 8.30 hours.
Afterwards we rushed to the toilets in the airport to get change out of our uniforms! I thought it was a good idea to be traditional and wore an ” Indian Dress ” Which it was really comfortable and pretty but really hot in it, but that did not stop me!
Then we met up with our driver who picked us up from the airport in his Toyota Innova, luckily it has air conditioned. We asked our driver how long would it take to get to The Taj Mahal? He replied ” 3 hours and 45 minutes to 4 hours ” With no sleep we was all still determine to get there! However, we did have a nap on the way, ha ha.
We arrived at the Taj Mahal around 16:00 pm we then met up with our tour guide, he was great! Who told us all the history behind The Taj Mahal and a brilliant photographer.
The moment we walked through I had goosebumps…….. ” It was just stunning and just phenomenal!! ”
Just take a look at the pictures 🙂
I have so much more pictures but it would be too much to put it on my blog!
So after just an hour and half to two hours at The Taj Mahal we was on our way back to New Delhi. When we arrived back at the hotel we was all finished! But it was such a great experienced and I am so glad that we did it even though it was very hard but was super worth it!
