Her inspiration started after bearing the man - 14 children in a span of 18 years.
It took 22 years to complete and is over 243ft tall.
It is a masterpiece of symmetry & style - except where the man lies - in peace - next to his wife.
So we decided to go in search of Mumtaz!!!
Part 1 - On the road - Delhi to Agra
For the uninitiated - Tina is my sister and Vishal is one of my buddies from kindergarden!!
That's Vishal & Tina
Oh - that's Vishal & yours truly!!
The road was calm, the travelling smooth, the air chilly as we left Delhi. Our first stop - the Gas station. Second Stop - highway dhaba for a heavy brunch. We covered the 200kms + distance in about 5 hours to land at the eastern gate of the Taj at 3 PM...
The last 2 kms we, covered by rickshaw!!!
