I first visited Agra on a family holiday when I was 7 years old and too young to appreciate it. On a work trip to Agra in 2013, the conference hosts planned a trip to Agra and I got to re-visit the place with a fresh perspective and adult eyes. I could finally appreciate the intricate marble carvings and the ornate enameled work. That time the Diana bench wasn’t there because she hadn’t yet visited with Prince Charles and made that infamously iconic photo of her sitting alone, head bent, on the bench in front of the Taj Mahal. It’s one of the biggest tourist attractions there – that bench.
Monumental love in #agra
