We did lots of things today. First, we went to see the Taj Mahal. It was exactly symmetrical, except the 4 chapters of the Quaran, an Islam prayer book. Shah Jahan and his wife, Mumtaz, were buried at the Taj Mahal, along with close family members. It took 122 workers 22 years to build this burial for Mumtaz. After that, we got the chessboard from the Handicraft store. Then, we drove a car to Fatehpur Sikri. The capitol was moved here, but was moved back to Agra when there was shortage of water. It also had winter and summer palaces.  When we were going to see something else, Aqeel puked. After a while, we then went back to the car to go to Jaipur. We rested for the rest of the day. Tomorrow, I hope it won't be as hectic.
