India Trip (Day 2)

Next day in Agra, India
Our high value ticket to visit Taj Mahal & Agra Fort

T-Shirt for the group!
Yes. Reached Taj Mahal.

marvelous buidling structure with marbel that built by Mughal Emperor,
Shah Jahan, in memeory of his 3rd wife, Mumtaz Mahal,
this mausoleum stands a symbol of eternal love!
It has the elements of Persian.
Taj Mahal is closed for visit every Friday.

The marbel wall at Taj Mahal

Go "Touch" the Mahal...

The empty tomb
Is Mumtaz Mahal body preserved in Taj Mahal?

"According to  Abdul Hamid Lahori, the writer of Badshahnama (pages 385-385) 
and Muhammad Salih Cambo, the writer of Shahjahannama (pages 447-449 and 451-452) 
Mumtaj uj Jamani (Mumtaz Mahal) died on Wednesday, June 17, 1631. 

Mumtaz Mahal was temporarily laid to rest across the river Tapti in the form of amanat (a temporarily burial). Abdul Hamid Lahori mentioned that her body was buried in a tank (with a dimension of 100x100 yards) in the garden of Zainabad across the river Tapti. 

After six months, the coffin was escorted to Agra under the supervision of prince Sha Shuja. 
She was laid to rest again in a beautiful site as amanat which is to the south of Agra city. 
Eventually, she was buried in the centre of small dome over which the great mausoleum 
(Taj Mahal) was erected. 

But a few questions still remain. 
First, is the body of Mumtaz Mahal still preserved or not?
 Second, if her body is safe, can we call it a mummy?"

My India Trip (Day 1)

I just came back from India (4D3N) trip.

It was a company trip and I fly with MAS Airline early Sat Morning (8am)!

It was a direct flight and I reached within 6 hours!

We have a nice aircon coach and welcomed by both Malaysia and Indian tour guide. 

my lunch at this place in Delhi that is near to the Embassy area in town!
The food not as spicy as we thought and the place is simple cozy and we were served like VIPs.

The washroom we went in Day 1.
Paid Rp2 for entrance.
We were given a bag of coins (about 10 Rp2) 

My Day 1 stay at Hotel Marina in Agra after the long journey from Delhi
(4-5 hours). Along the journey we observed the poor folks doing small and big business
at the field, near the highway and so on!

This is my room. Generally it was nice except that at night we can still hear the horns from the vehicles
on the road. It was a little disturb to me!

Throughout the journey we drank this mineral brand, 
that is manufactured by Coca-Cola!

It was safe to drink and no one get stomach upset at all.
We were about 60++ in total!

Yup, as you may be wonder, where have I visited in Day 1?
Thye answer is NONE. My day 1 is simply spent on flight, coach and dining!
