O
ne of the secrets I learned in Agra was a rarely seen, but breathtaking place from which to
view the Taj Mahal. Everyone sees and takes photographs from its front garden. But if you
venture behind the monument, across the Yamuna River, and then turn to look back at it
from a distance, the view is just as stunning. I went at sunrise for the pretty light, and was
rewarded with a glimpse of a group of colorfully-garbed women walking along the riverbank.
