I like to believe that it is every person’s dream to travel, meet people, learn about the local culture and get to know as much there is to know about the world. The majority only gets to travel close to home or visit their continent at most. There are few of those who can truly visit locations far from home and have the luxury of enjoying it. If you do get the chance to visit, you should make sure you visit these 5 places in Asia.
1. The Taj Mahal
The Taj Mahal was built as a romantic gesture, commissioned in 1632 by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan to house the remains of his cherished wife. It stands on the southern bank of the Yamuna River in Agra, India. The famed mausoleum complex, built over more than 20 years, is one of the most outstanding examples of Mughal architecture, which combined Indian, Persian and Islamic influences. It remains one of the world’s most celebrated structures. It is a spectacular symbol of India’s rich history.
