must see | TAJ MAHAL

Taj Mahotsav
After my full day with Taj, I hired a rickshaw(A noisy three wheeled vehicle) and asked him to take me to Sadar Bazaar. I booked a hotel room for few days as the Taj Mahotsav was approaching near. Earlier on revealing my intentions to visit Taj to some of the business partners, they had proposed that I extend my stay in Agra and be a part of the Mahotsav.

Ten days Carnival
Taj Mahotsav is a non-stop 10 day carnival held annualy at Shilpgram, a place very near to Taj Mahal. The festivities commence with a spectacular procession inspired by Mughal splendor. There are bedecked elephants and camels, drum beaters, folk artists and mastercraftsmen, all geared up to create a visual delight reminiscent of the golden era of Mughal Durbars.There are festivities all around. Taj mahotsav is where the legendry artisans breathe life into their exquisite works of art. Marble inlay apart, the festival brings forth an array of other fine crafts as well- wood carvings from saharanpur, brass and other metalware from Moradabad, handmade carpets of Badohi, the pottery of Khurja, chickenwork of Lucknow,the silk of Banares... to name a few.

Cuisines and Delicacies
I relished the exotic cuisines and delicacies prepared by some of the oldest exponents and typical preparations from the interiors of Uttar Pradesh.

Dance and Drama
Soul -stirring performances from folk artists of various states held me spellbound. A group of dancers forced me to join them and dance to the Indian tunes. There was fun and fun and nothing else. The festival aptly showcases India's art, and culture. Not only this, it is also a gentle peep into the rich heritage and extraordinary legacies of this wonderful land. After attending the tour, I realized what I could have missed If I would not have extended my stay in Agra. Really, it was worth spending extra money.
