Trip to India This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   Anyone who wants to travel outside the United Statesshould go to India. The country has many exciting places to visit; among the mostfascinating are the Taj Mahal, Delhi and Rajasthan.

The white marble TajMahal is renowned for its architectural magnificence and beauty; it is countedamong the world's eight wonders. In 1631, when Shah Jahan's wife died inchildbirth, he brought the most skilled craftsmen from Asia and Europe to Agra.It took almost 22 years to build the memorial to his wife, and even though theTaj Mahal's construction cost many lives, it is an amazing monument to a man'slove for a woman. Shah Jahan intended to build a black marble mausoleum forhimself and have the two linked by a silver bridge, but his own death ended thisbreathtakingly beautiful conception.

Another place to visit is the cityof Delhi, where monuments and relics of all ages and styles come together in oneharmonious whole. Delhi's India Gate, a popular evening spot, was raised inmemory of the 90,000 Indian soldiers killed during World War I and has become amemorial to unknown soldiers.

The third place in India everyone should seeis the state of Rajasthan. Among the most popular places in Rajasthan is the LakePalace, built on a four-acre island at the center of Lake Pichola. Itsapartments, courts, fountains and gardens are worthy attractions.

Indiahas many exciting places to visit; next time you plan a trip abroad, go toIndia.
