After an early morning at the Taj Mahal we negotiated for a tuk-tuk (as we called the three-wheeled vehicles) to take us around to a few other sites in Agra.
The 300R price we were to pay was arranged with Abbib but he only took us only a short distance and then switched off with another driver who was introduced as Kalu.Despite the horrendous traffic we only had two small accidents on the way to Chini Tomb; once we clipped another tuk-tuk and then there was another tuk-tuk that we ran into. Chini Ka Rauza translates as ‘Chinese Mud’ and means ‘Chinese Tiles’ referring to the exquisite blue and green tile work on the exterior.Detail of the tiled exterior.The unusual structure of the towers that rose like lotuses from the building.Decorative painted ceilings in the Chini tomb. A get-together outside of the Chini Tomb.More of our trip to Delhi, Agra and Rajasthan in 2010.
