Finding the Sound of Infinity at the Taj Mahal
It Has to Be Done
Yup, it's a giant tourist trap. Yup, there are always a million people. Yup, they don't even let you go down into the tomb anymore. You still gotta go.

Always Look Back
When leaving the Taj Mahal you pass through a small doorway. Legend has it if you turn and see the Taj through the doorway you will be destined to return. And who says you should never look back?

Finding the Sound of Infinity at the Taj Mahal
The Taj Mahal might be one of the world's most beautiful labors of love. Thousands of people flock to the intricate cenotaph every year, but only a few lucky ones are able to take in the fleeting sound of the vibrating air moving through the ventilated dome. It's an eery echo that made our visit truly memorable. Some even call it a spiritual experience. To experience the Sound of Infinity for yourself, get to the Taj Mahal at dawn before the gates even open. Once you're inside, sprint to the cenotaph chamber and wait until it's completely empty. Fight the urge to capture your touristy Taj Mahal pictures until later. The view from outside will wait for you. Once inside the chamber, wait until you are alone or at least with a silent group. You should be able to hear the vibrations almost immediately. It's a deep-felt harmonic that seems to reverberate though your entire body, and leaves an eery quiet once it's gone. As soon as someone walks in and begins to make noise, it's gone.
