The reason for many people's visit to India - the Taj Mahal! Look out for the incredible marble inlay work (pietra dura) and see the whole Taj change colour - pink at sunrise, white at midday and yellow at sunset! #tajmahal #india #travel #marble #beauty #pietradura

Inside the Jama Masjid mosque at the fortress of Fatehpur Sikri. Tie a thread of cotton to the back wall and make a knot for each wish - traditionally childless women tie a thread to the jali for children, as the Emperor Akbar wished for on his visit! #fatephursikri #travel #india #jali #jamamasjid

The baby Taj Mahal or Itimad-ud-Daulah, is older, smaller and in some ways more serene (much less crowding, and an air of tranquility coming from it!). Don't miss it! #babytaj #itimaduddaulah #india #architecture #travel

An absolutely amazing morning at the Golden Temple in Amritsar. The must-see of North India. Your head must be covered (free head covers are provided) and you will be fed, watered and made to feel at home amongst the many others on their pilgrimage there. You might even catch a worship band playing traditional Sikh instruments. Pause and take it all in!#goldentemple #india #travel #tolerance #religion
