Taj Mahal Part II

The majesty of the Taj Mahal is quite literally breath-taking, but it's also the little details like the intricate marble work that I couldn't get enough of and wanted to preserve in my memory and with photographpy. The first time I visited the Taj with my Mom, I noticed that the marble steps up to the top were quite worn in the centre from all the traffic and also slippery from the rain, and as they are quite steep, it's quite a dangerous climb for older visitors.

This time, the steps were covered with wooden planks. Much safer. Here are more details.
