The tomb of Mumtaz Mahal is at the centre under the big dome. It is also covered with engraved white marble. There is a gallery around the tomb from where we can have the view of the tomb where Queen Mumtaz is lying in peace. There is a Yamuna river behind the Taj Mahal and also a the big and famous Agra fort. King Aurangzeb had kept his father, Shah Jahan. He used to watch the Taj Mahal from there during his last days.
There is a row of fountains from the entrance up to the Taj at the centre of the passage and green lawns everywhere with beautiful flower plants. We enjoyed everything. We were now tired and wanted to take rest so had to return to our hotel even though we wanted to be there for more time. Before returning we col lected our separate and group photographs from the photographer. We kept those beautiful photographs as a memory and left the dream building with unforgettable memories of Taj Mahal. Next day we returned to our homes by bus and then joined the schools next day.
