Next stop was Agra which is home to the Taj Mahal. If you are in Agra you are there to see the Taj but many people might miss another beautiful historic land mark: Itman-ud-Daula’s Tomb. His tomb is also considered the “baby Taj” and was the first tomb to be constructed using white marble instead of red sandstone. It is said this tomb was the inspiration for the Taj Mahal Emperor Shah Jahan constructed for his wife but his mausoleum was much more grandiose. Even though this tomb is smaller than the Taj Mahal it is just as gorgeous in its own right.
