While on the road between Mangalore and Goa, at Ankola, a series of sign boards raised our curiosity. It simply said ‘Diabetes’ and an arrow. After two or three such boards, we saw this one with little more details.
Agra is a city which is much more than the Taj, but when you are home to one of the most popular places on planet Earth it is but natural for everyone to be enamoured and completely taken by that one attraction - especially when you have only 18 hours that you spend in the city!
We spent those 18 hours visiting the Taj twice. This is the third post on the Taj (I am a BIG fan of the post before this one by Bharath!), so please bear with us with the overload on India’s most popular attraction.
Following a parallel track across the river, we arrived and walked the last two hundred meters by foot and when the tree cover broke, we were faced with a view of the Taj that very few people get to see…. The unhindered view of the Taj with the river Yamuna flowing beside it.
Keen to see an artist who is so much a part of Jaipur history was our story for today.We knocked on his door only to find that he had passed away last year. His daughter, Meenakshi, still continues the tradition of pottery that her father had revived…
Day 8 was perhaps the most difficult drive. We started from Madkkeri, enjoying the misty ranges, coffee plantations and the tall trees that flanked the road. But the winding roads were full of potholes, making the drive very demanding.
