I took this picture from under a marble bench to get the frame around Taj Mahal. Unluckily it was a grey, misty morning.

I had lunch in Hotel Oberoi Amarvilas just to peep around and take pictures. This is one of the most luxurious hotels in India. Prices start at around 780 USD (NOK 7,000) per night to 13,000 USD (118,000 NOK) for the Kohinoor Suite. All rooms (102) have a view of the Taj Mahal.
