Taj is not a symbol of love - Read the full story n historyof it. He killed Noors first husband to marry as 7th wife and on 14th delivery she died, and after6 months he married the sister of Noor to produce some more!
泰姬陵不是爱情标志 - 把它历史和整个故事读一下。他杀了诺尔的第一任丈夫，娶她为第7个老婆，她第14次生产时死了。过了6个月，他娶了她妹妹，生更多！

Good job Obama, at least you made the administration work towards cleaning the roads and spits of paan including toilets which are in deplorable state and also the surroundings. Now common people will be able to enjoy the cleanliness but for how long- everything will be back to normal. From now on strict rules should be followed and the flow of tourist should be streamlined as people have to pay bribe to get in fast. Best, remove the importance of this monument from tourist wish list and make the tourists go to other places in the country so that those areas would be developed.
这事干得好，奥巴马，至少你让这政府为清洁道路、乱吐的槟榔包括不堪入目的厕所和周围环境做了工作。现在普通人可以享受这清洁了，可是有多久 - 一切都会返回常态。现在起必须服从严格规定而且应该高效安排游客，因为人们要行贿才能快点进去。…

I think Agra people must be happy on this as due to this visit that city got the face lift.
At least Obama should have told he would be visiting all the Indian cities, so that entire india would have been cleaned.
