Talking about India

The teacher Tanmay, who is from Jaipur, India started his story about India.

The hometown of the teacher, Jaipur is the capital and largest city of the Indian state of Rajasthan in Northern India. Jaipur is also known as the Pink City of India. I looked at the photo of this city, it has a really pink color.

Udaipur is a major city in the Indian state of Rajasthan. Udaipur is a very popular tourist destination. Nicknames of this city are Venice of the east, City of lakes. This image of the palace with its reflection in the water demonstrates it:

One the most important attraction is the Taj Mahal. It is an ivory-white marble mausoleum on the south bank of the Yamuna river in the Indian city of Agra. It was commissioned in 1632 by the Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan, to house the tomb of his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal.

I remembered my trip to the USA where I visited the casino Taj Mahal in Atlantic city. This casino belongs to Donald Trump. The teacher said that he saw the documentary movie on TV about how passionate was Donald Trump in his wish of buying this casino.

Tanmay advised visiting India in the winter time because in summertime the temperature can reach 50. This fact recorded CNN:
(CNN) India recorded its highest-ever temperature on May 23, 2016, when the heat in the town of Phalodi, in the western state of Rajasthan, shot up to a burning 51 degrees Celsius (123.8 degrees Fahrenheit).
