Photos en route to Fatepuhr Sikri:
Saw our first ever wild peacocks in a field once we were out in the country.
Babu, our great tuk tuk driver in Agra.
The infants’ tombs were each made from one piece of marble.
The Jewel House gave the appearance of a 2 story structure at a distance. Once close up, however, it was a single, vaulted chamber open from floor to roof with openings on each of the 4 sides. The structure was intended for what has been conjectured as a hall for religious speeches or for private audiences. Some consider that it may have been a hall for weighing ceremony for the emperor and princes on the Persian New Year's Day.
Treasury Kiosk also known as the Astrologer's Seat.
We took another tuk tuk back down to the parking lot where our driver, Raju, had been patiently waiting for us and also keeping an eye on our belongings in the tuk tuk for the last 2.5 hours.
Photos en route back to Agra:
Loved the 'inner wear' sign!
We have never been in any other city or country where we saw so may men wearing hand knit vests as we did in Agra.
Saw huge numbers of band trucks - thank goodness, we didn't also hear the music blaring away!
After driving back to
Our bus ride to the city of Jaipur. We had planned to take the train between Agra and Jaipur but there were no tickets left.
Musical entertainment at the half way stop!
