About Taj Mahal, I felt like Shah Jahan was saying to me the famous one-liner of Jaime Lannister in Game of Thrones, "The things I do for love". Though, I do like Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) and Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) from the show.
For that moment, I thought that I should also make such a beautiful mausoleum for the love of my life, but my brain reminded me of two things.
First, you do need at least a girlfriend or a wife for that and second, the famous dialogue of Bobby "Axe" Axelrod from Billions, "A lot of guys watch Bruce Lee movies, doesn't mean they can do karate". I instantly controlled my emotions and move forward.
After coming out of the monument, we decided to take our leave from here and we went to Agra Fort. Around 1:00 am we reached the Agra Fort, after taking the Entrance ticket we booked a Guide. Here, we went to :
Jahangiri Mahal Khas Mahal Musamman Burj (An Octagonal Tower) Diwan-I-Khas (Hall of Private Audience) Diwan-I-Aam (Hall of Public Audience)
Jahangiri Mahal is the main attraction of the Agra Fort. It was built by Mughal Emporer Akbar for the residence of his wives. is the place were the Shah Jahan lived with his wife Mumtaz Mahal. From the lattice windows here, you can see the Taj Mahal and the river.
Musamman Burj is basically a tower made in an octagonal shape. It is the Jail in which Shah Jahan was captive by his own son, Aurangzeb. In Diwan-I-Khas, Shah Jahan used to meet dignitaries and foreign ambassadors. In Diwan-I-Aam he used to meet officials and commoners and listened to the petitioners.
