India. Agra. Taj Mahal.

In Agra, I decided to get into avoiding public transport and car hire. From Delhi to Agra traveled about 4 hours. 
Road transport has been loaded, sometimes to failure ranging from motorcycles and carts to large trucks. Carrier has got a fairly advanced and we briskly made ​​the rounds of a cork on the left, then right on roadsides, saving time.

Everything that goes like public transport, scored for a full and a little more. This is something like our bus.
SRT for the rickshaws.
I got the impression that the chaotic traffic on the roads, each goes where he wants. In principle, it is true, our driver often went to the opposite line and still dissatisfied signaled that it does not pass, and when the police when he saw it, shouted something to him, he still snapped, but when we went forward, he was still more dissatisfied. There all the honking and constantly for no good reason, much like in our weddings. In spite of this chaos on the roads, accidents, I have not seen, even small ones, although the machine podryapanye.
Roadside amusement park.
Queue rickshaws
The sacred animal.
In appearance like a giant potato chips. Once sent to the Indian woman camera down, she immediately covered with a handkerchief, had to pretend that I want to buy a cake.
Patsanenok selling trinkets to the Taj Mahal, originally overpriced at 20 times.
Access to the complex is 750 rupees for tourists (about 17 U.S. dollars) for the Indians, those who like them, and is fluent in Hindi (approximately U.S. $ 1). At the entrance to carefully check all, vytrushivayut all of the pockets and bags, because of this long line, two lines, men and women separately.
And here it is, beautiful Taj Mahal - the mausoleum-mosque is located on the banks of river Yamuna.
The Indians are photographed against the backdrop of the Taj Mahal, pulling up his hand, comparing the chamber with a dome of the mausoleum holding his fingers like a bell.
It said the interpreter, when the Indians do not like taking pictures of small children, and even surprised that the mother stopped and pose for the camera.
The mausoleum of white marble. During the construction, marble brought over 300 kilometers from the quarry. The construction involved about 20,000 people, more than 1,000 elephants brought marble in Agra.
The mausoleum was built for his beloved wife - the beautiful Mumtaz Mahal, Shah Jahan who bore 13 children, and the 14th birth of the child did not survive.
The building began to build in about 1632, and when the building came to an end in 1653, the governor gave the order to proceed with the construction of the second building - the mausoleum for himself, a replica of the first, but in black marble. The mausoleum was to grow up on the opposite bank of the river Yamuna and to connect the bridge. In 1658, Shah Jahan's son Aurangzeb overthrew him. He stopped the construction of a second mausoleum, and his father imprisoned for life in a tower in Agra. There and spent the remaining nine years, in the room from the window of which was seen the Taj Mahal.
Only after his death, he once again reunited with his beloved - according to his will, he was buried next to her in a crypt.
Here I do not understand who is the man, the military or police.
The height of the Taj Mahal, along with a dome 74 meters.
Yamuna River is the longest tributary of the Ganges, and abounding.
The name under which the famous mausoleum, Taj Mahal  - a variant of the name of Mumtaz Mahal.
Uncle came up with a whole harem, all sat down as if on cue, and he raised his head up and began to mumble something.
By its very mausoleum all go without shoes.
The luxurious Park, which leads to the mausoleum of the entrance, like the palace of red stone, decorated with white patterned from the top 11 domes on the sides - the tower, also crowned with white domes.
There is near-complete set of souvenirs with the image of the Taj Mahal. Some souvenir shop at tutachki do.
