Going to Agra is convenient when you are traveling from Delhi/NCR. We drove in our own car stopping whenever required. Our little one also had fun during the road journey as he was able to notice different vehicles throughout.
We stayed at The GateWay Hotel Fatehabad Road Agra. Offering the best amenities alongside magnificent view of the TAJ MAHAL from its terrace, it made for a wonderful stay. The green lush garden adjacent to swimming pool was full with toddlers playing with balls. We were glad of our choice as our son was not the only one enjoying the sunny day in January weather.
We went to visit the Taj Mahal the next day. Given the prestigious position in the seven wonders of the world, Taj Mahal is one of the most populated tourist destination in India. Therefore, we went to visit it right after the breakfast. There were two good reasons to do so : a) beating the rush , and b) utilizing the energy of our little one who was fully charged with a good night sleep.
There is no word to describe the beauty of the Taj Mahal. Maybe its the reason for its construction or the love in the heart of millions of people who come to visit it, the whole ambience around Taj is full of warmth & affection. We enjoyed the view and sat there for a couple of hours. Clicking pictures and showing different objects to our little one, we enjoyed sitting under the sun. River Yamuna which flows right across the Taj adds to the exquisite beauty in its own natural form. The warmth in its surrounding and the iconic structure develops a sense of comfort within us. Its rightly said that Travel is the comfort food of the soul. 🙂
