We made a visit to the massive Jama Masjid mosque, and took a quiet walk around the expansive ruins. I found especially interesting the three palaces built by the emperor for each of his three favorite wives - one Hindu, one Muslim, and one Christian. How very progressive.
Our favorite part of the trip was that we didn't have a driver anxiously waiting for us outside, so we really got to take our time soaking it in. We climbed up to a perfect rooftop perch where we could watch people, birds, and clouds lazily rolling by as the sun sank below the horizon.
