The CuLT Post

The trip into the mountains is always interesting. The old Hill Cart road, the hustle bustle, students coming home from school, small towns packed with both vehicles and peoples and yes, there is a railway track on the right hand.

In this case I have made an exception and left the city of Agra as the last city we’ll visit in India. This is because this city is home to the fabulous Taj Mahal. Agra sits on the banks of the Yamuna River in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh.
