Taj Mahal -The 'temple of love,' was constructed to keep a promise that was made by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan to his wife Mumtaz Mahal who expressed her last dying wish to the distraught Shah Jahan to build her a memorial that would be the ultimate dedication to unparallel love in the entire world.
The construction of this marvelous building began in 1931 that takes 22 years and finally completed in 1653. 20,000 labour works day and night to complete this milky marble tomb. The Taj Mahal in A

I am always amazed how a country so rich in history, culture and the arts and neighboring the USA, is a country that few in the USA even know about other than a beach vacation with margaritas in hand.

This past week, I took the opportunity to take my first real vacation since the summer of 2007. It is ironic that an executive of a travel company never gets to travel himself, but such is the reality of running a business - I have had to put my passion for traveling on the back burner as I have built a business around serving the needs of other travelers.
