Where: Taj Mahal in Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India
Distance from Fargo: 7,304 miles
Comments: My spouse and I travelled to Delhi, India, and took a tour of what is known as the "golden triangle" which is made up by the three cities of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. It is a cultural epicenter in India with rich history. Construction began on the Taj Mahal in 1632 and was commissioned by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in honor of his favorite wife Mumtaz Mahal. It is constructed entirely of marble and is located on the South bank of the sacred Yamuna River.
