Somehow, I never thought that I would see the Taj Mahal.
It seemed beyond the possible. The beauty. The grandeur. Before going, it was like it didn't really exist. It was a mythological place beyond the grasp of mortals.
But, of course, it was on my list of ‘must-see' locations in India. And, for some reason, when the prospect of seeing it was real, my expectations were low. I didn't think it could be anything like the pictures suggest.
And then, looking through the portal, I could make out a portion of a white building. And once on the other side, I saw it. And it is truly grand. I expected that an hour or so would be enough to see a building but three passed quickly just drinking in the sight. As I walked the long path to leave, I was still surprised by its magnificence each time I glanced back.
