Extraordinary mausoleum built by Shah Jahan for his deceased the wife. Take your time to see the gardens, the minarets, the symmetry of the place and in the end, actually walk the marble steps of the Taj yourself. Take a good look at the laid in precious stones and have some good views of the Yamuna river and the Red Fort. Don't hesitate to visit the Taj more often: you'll remain impressed whether it is in the early morning, in the blistering heat, on a rainy day or on a late afternoon when the sun is about to set.
