Taj Mahal

Yep, I was there.

Leading up to it. Lots of people come and try to sell you little trinkets at prices which I thought were totally reasonable. They probably mark it up at least 100-200%. At least. What, a snowglobe for $3? Probably cost 0.45c to make. Come on!*

Lines outside the entrance, separated M/F. It's sort of dirty outside, but well maintained inside. 

Glory shot. Extremely crowded. I singlehandedly negotiated a guide for 50 rupees. He wasn't a very good guide. I did learn the minarets are slightly angled outward in case of an earthquake, so they don't break the primary structure.

*: In Job's voice.
