My FIL decided to take us for a vacation within a vacation so we got a little unwinding between our trips to Chennai and Mumbai.
We went to Delhi and from there on to Agra for a day.
This being the first time daddy and the kids are seeing the Taj Mahal, there was a lot of expectation and a lot of hyping for the kids.
The story of Shah Jahan and his love for Mumtaj and how the Taj Mahal was built for her was repeated many times for the kids the day before and during the drive.
Once we reached the Taj and the kids went "oooh" and "aaah" there was a pop quiz for the kids...
Me: Who built the Taj Mahal?
Jr.: ask me ask me.. I know the answer
Me : okay you tell me.. who?
Jr.: Shah Rukh Khan!
Me : !!!!!! விடிய விடிய முகல் புராணம் கேட்டுட்டு, மும்தஜுக்கு புருஷன் ஷாருக்னு சொல்லறியே டீ!!
(vidia vidia Mughal Puranam kettutu, Mumtajukku purushan Shah Rukhnu sollariye di!!)
I don't know how to translate that last part into English from Tamlish. Needless to say, the education on the history of the Taj continued for another 15 minutes after that answer.
Here are some photos from our Taj Mahal trip.
It was truly breathtaking!
