We were up at 5.15 to get to the Taj before the crowds. If you do go don’t bring a large bag, or cigarettes, or lighters, because you will hold EVERYONE up at security. (This means YOU, Italian tour group.)
The entry for foreigners is R750, but this was included in our tour fee. It was cloudy so we didn’t have a sunrise over the Taj. Never mind.
To be honest, I wasn’t that impressed. The interior is all inlaid marble, and out the back you can look at a river now covered in scunge.
About 10am we moved on to the Red Fort. This was occupied by the chap that built the Taj.
From here we went to the ‘Baby Taj’.
After this everyone was quite unavailable. It was still only 11.30 so we returned to the hotel. I went wandering in the local area, eating from stalls, then found an internet place. About 4 hours later the stall food decided to take revenge and that didn’t finish for the next 48 hours.
