The schools closed for autumn break. Our school arranged a trip to Agra. We started the next day by the Taj Express. We were very eager to see Taj Mahal. We had already read about this wonder of the world. After enjoying a comfortable journey of two hours, we reached Agra and then the historical monument, the Taj Mahal. We were spell-bound to see the beauty of the Taj. It appeared to me like a dream in marble. Shahjahan built Taj Mahal in the sweet memory of his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal. We saw the graves of Shahjahan and Mumtaz Mahal. Our guide explained to us each part of this monument in detail. We also paid a visit to the Red Fort of Agra and Fatehpur Sikri. We were very happy to see these historical places. This trip was very educative and entertaining.
