Sometimes it pays to go to the other side

In this case i mean the other side of the Yamuna River at the Mehtab Bagh ( Moonlight Garden ),  on the backside of Taj Mahal.  Why?  well because simply it gives you the chance to see that the Taj is actually built exactly symmetrically, no difference from which side you look at it. At the same time going to the other side of the river will give you some moments of rest as many people do not bother to make the trip to the other side. The beautifull late afternoon light gives the place  a tranquility which can not be easily found in overcrowded India. The goat herders taking their flock home add an almost timeless sense to the scene.
