Read and rate Travel Journal Entries for Taj Mahal, Uttar Pradesh, India

Feb 16, 2009 - Agra

We got up at 5:15 am and were out the door to the Taj in the dark. Our driver - BOBBY!!!!!! dropped us in some dark alley & told us to follow him.

After paying our 750 rupees which is around 8.00 US, we got a free bottle of water & shoe covers that looked like something you wear in surgery or while painting. It was a spectacular as I had hoped it would be & definitely more peaceful because it is such a large place. It was a bit annoying...
