Quite impressed by Lucknow as a city - great roads, a charming historical feel, some green pockets. Tempted to travel around UP!
I decided to visit the Taj Mahal. I've always wanted to see this. It is even more stunning than I expected. It's incredible what people can build and what love can motivate us to build.
The power of the Kashi Vishwanath temple hit us! Incredibly powerful. So greatful to the divine universal spirit of all.
