Our Visit to the Taj Mahal

Sunday 15 February 2015

This was a memorable day. We visited the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. The splendour of these two sights was breath–taking and a reminder of the workmanship and skills of those involved in their creation.

Our guide Sandie was truly inspirational and challenged our skills of empathy and understanding of people in the past. His knowledge was amazing. The religious aspect of life has been sustained and we were reminded of this through the imagery in the gardens and the adjacent Hindu Temple.

The practice of thanking God for such a simple thing as water reminds us of the need to be grateful for the many blessings perhaps insufficiently acknowledged in our daily lives. As the team of principals reflected on the day’s experience, the camaraderie and sense of common purpose increased and will continue in the days ahead.
