India Trip Day 11 / Mahtab Bagh (The Taj Mahal)


It’s not only recently that I get something soooo wrong without a good reason but the worst mistake that I made on this trip was that I thought we were arriving in Agra on a Friday for some reason – but it was actually a Tuesday.  The Taj Mahal is closed on Fridays and as I thought we were arriving in Agra on a Friday, I put “Go to Mahtab Bagh to see the Taj Mahal from across the river” in our schedule. I still don’t know for sure why I thought it was going to be on Friday but my guess is that it was that way when I first planned the itinerary. At some later stage it was changed to Tuesday, but “The Taj Mahal is closed” was left in my mind.  By the time I realised the mistake it was too late to change our plan.  If I’d realised it earlier I would have tried to go to the Taj Mahal itself at sunset rather than just do this view from the back.



We got there when the sky started to change the colour.  I thought I could take better photos as we get closer but sadly the barbed wire fence spoiled the view.
