11 thoughts on “Agra: Beyond the Taj Mahal”

  1. You’re right the architecture around Agra is so beautiful. It would be a great destination even with out having the Taj. We didn’t visit Itimud-ud-DUlah’d tomb. It looks atleats as mpressive as the other buildings. Maggie

  2. Your architectural photos are always so beautiful and delightful to look at! Those historical sites in Agra are already impressive. But the way you captured their beauty really gave these places a sense of grandeur.

  3. Great write-up and lovely photos Len!
    I visited in 1985 when I was solo backpacking around the world for 12 months. The month in India (mostly Rajasthan) was amazing!

    1. Thanks for the kind words! I guess Taj Mahal was not so crowded back then 🙂 Where have you been in Rajasthan? Jaipur and Ranthambore are my first two destinations. Both are amazing.

      1. It was crowded back then also, but probably not as much as today.
        Jaipur, Udaipur, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, and think Ajmer but I’d have to read through my old journals. They’re back in Australia and I’m travelling in Bosnia right now. One day I’ll get around to digitising those journals.
        I finished digitizing the 4 months in Indonesia from the 1998 trip (check my site), but I’m too busy writing about my current trips. 😉

      2. Haha it takes time. How did you digitize your old photos? Did you scan or photograph them? I got trouble with the reflection when trying to photograph the old photos. Cannot avoid them 100%. Btw, have a nice time in Bosnia! 🙂

      3. Before I left on the last 6-year long travel, I scanned over 4,000 film/slide film/photos film photos, but with a new scanner, I didn’t do a great job.
        Many of the the old photos/negs were ruined as they were in storage for a couple of decadaes.
        I’ve never tried photographing photos before. I’d suggest scanning if you can.
        Thank you! 🙂
