The Visit to a Historical Place

Our school decided to go on an educational tour to visit the Taj Mahal. A bus was arranged to pick us from our school. About fifteen boys were selected to go. I was also one of them. The bus was to leave by 8 a.m. All the students reached the bus in time. When we reached the Taj Mahal, there was a long queue for the tickets. But our teachers had made prior arrangements through an agent, so we were saved from standing in the line. We entered through the big gate and I had the first glimpse of this magnificent building. I was wonder struck on seeing this matchless beauty in Marble. The Taj Mahal was built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in the memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal. It is situated on the bank of River Yamuna. The tombs of Emperor Shah Jahan and his wife Queen Mumtaz Mahal are built inside a big hall. Beautiful inlay work can be seen on the graves. The whole building is surrounded by trees and beautiful gardens. There are fountains from the main entrance right up to the monument. At the four corners we have four minarets. It took us two hours to see the whole place. Soon we proceeded towards our bus. We returned home by 3 o’clock in the afternoon.

It is build on the banks of river Yamuna. There are many other worth-seeing places in Agra, like the Agra Fort and the majestic palace of Akbar’s wife – Jodha Bai which is around 40 kms. to the south west of Agra in Fatehpur Sikri.
