Don’t let that discourage you however, the Taj Mahal was one of the most spectacular sights I’ve ever seen. Follow the jump to see a few more Taj Mahal pictures as well from the city of Agra itself.

The mosque to the left of the Taj Mahal. There is a (non-functional) identical one on the right, to preserve the architectural symmetry – it’s completely empty inside.

There are a few more interesting pictures I took from the Taj Mahal and Agra and you can see all of them here. Over the past 2 weeks I’ve also posted other pictures from Delhi including the Red Fort, Chandni Chowk, and India Gate.
