Almost no one makes a first journey to India without a pilgrimage to the Taj Mahal in Agra. Travelers pile into the New Delhi train station early in the morning, passing porters in red uniforms with luggage piled high atop turbans, just to board the 6 a.m. Shatabdi Express. The train speeds to Agra in a brisk 2½ hours. The goal for the majority of these passengers? See the Taj and move on.
