Epitome of craftmenship can be seen here. Exquisite and profound ornamentation work in stone inlay not only on the floors but on all the marble exteriors. Situated by the river, it is absolutely breathtaking during sunset. They have started making the gardens really beautiful now. Must visit for photographers!
This place was well built. The architecture was awesome. But there is not much to see or spend more time with your family or friends. If you are a lover of art and architecture you will enjoy spending time here. Average time that can be spent by an idle person is 45min to 1 hour
A beautiful monument set in white marble stone carving. Locals call it The Mini Taj. Breathtaking work on the marble dome and pillars. Worth your time and money.
Best known as "baby Taj" for looking like a small version of the Taj Mahal, yet built earlier, this mausoleum is a great sight. Perhaps not as magnificent, but definitely less crowded, it allows for some close examination of the architecture, decorations, and interior. The grounds overlook the river.
Cool place. Very interesting to see what served as inspiration for the Taj. As with most monuments in India, I wish there was a bit more of an effort made not only to preserve it's current state, but also show what it looked like originally.
