Trip to Taj Mahal, Agra

On the day following the conference (January 9, 2009) we plan to have a trip to Taj Mahal, which is located in Agra few hundred kilometers to the north-west from Allahabad. The tentative plan for this trip is to travel from Allahabad for Agra on the evening of January 8 by train. We will spent most of the day (Jan 09) in Agra, and return to New Delhi by bus.

The cost of the trip is not included in the conference registration fee, but would not exceed $160-200 (including transportation by train, breakfast and lunch in Agra, and visit itself). Various options are negotiating at the moment, and it will be very helpful to know how many people are interested to go. In order to book the train tickets in advance, we will need to provide the names of the travelers.

We are trying to reserve the train tickets for all the people interested to visit Taj Mahal. Since the railways is the most reliable and affordable ways to travel in India, we need to reserve the tickets as soon as possible. For security reasons we need to provide all the names and home addresses of the travelers. If you have not done so, please send your name and home address to or directly to Dr. Mahi Singh in the next few days
