View of the Taj Mahal from the top of the nature trail on the East side.
We were on the gazebo at the far end of a nature trail that surrounds Taj Mahal next to its East side entrance. It was a perfect setting, with the Taj Mahal in front, visible through a dense forest cover.
The sun however, was playing hide-and-seek with the clouds and we were trying to get that perfect time when the clouds would move revealing a golden light.
When suddenly, the light drizzle turned into a heavy lashing. Stranded inside the gazebo (which thankfully also protected the camera), we none-the-less took some rain soaked shots.
And in turn had our best Taj Mahal experience. You really never know what awaits you when.
