Its been a long time since i’d last blogged. I went to Uttar Pradesh in Mid-April. The trip was amazing. I went by overnight train for the first time. I went to Vrindavan, Fatehpur Sikri and Agra.
I enjoyed visiting these places.
Trip To Vrindavan
Trip to Vrindavan was exciting as well as calming.
Coincidentally, It was “Phool Bangla” in Banke Bihari Mandir in Vrindavan. There were large of people there! *Phew*
Tip: If you ever go to Vrindavan, don’t put on shades/spectacles or don’t use sling bag otherwise monkeys can snatch them 😛
And wear cheap/non-pricey chappals to visit a temple- you never know what will happen!
Girls!! You can do street shopping in Vrindavan. I loved the jewelry stalls there. 😀
Trip to Fatehpur Sikri
It was a very hot day. I think approx 43 degree Celsius. I visted Buland Darwaza and Jodhabai’s Palace. It was a beautiful man made place. I loved the architecture-the way those carvings were done, lighting systems, sanitation systems, air conditioners way back to Mughal era. It was astonishing to see them!
Tip: If you are visiting Fatehpur Sikri in Summer, don’t forget to apply generous amount of suncreen and carry sunglasses with you + Water Bottle + Sports Shoes + Flat Slippers.
Trip To Agra
My most favorite part of the trip was Agra. I visted Agra Fort. I was amazed to see the monument and how it functioned during the Mughal Era. Those Mughals were really rich. Even more than Tatas or Ambani’s 😛
I loved the way how the Queens and daasi’s put their jewelry in the old time’s wall jewelry box. *Note: I am a history geek. Therefore, tolerate my inner fangirl over monuments*
And then i arrived to my favorite destination: the “TAJ MAHAL”
Its been 10-12 years since i last visited Taj Mahal. I have no words to describe it. To be honest, i wasn’t expecting so many people at 4 PM in a hot weather. This place was fully packed.
No one cares how you pose or how you click infront of Taj Mahal. Just pose what your *dil* says!
I didn’t liked the fact that tourist polluted some back space of Taj Mahal to throw away plastic bottles or socks. I mean c’mon- what are dustbins for?
Anyways, I loved the place.
Tip: Carry sunglasses, Have lots of memory in your phone/ipad/camera etc.
Thank you for reading the blog till the end.
