Great piece of write-up .. Pramod!
Amazing details with equally cool pics to support .. especially the summary in first post gives lots of answers upfront.

I see that you spent ~1.5 hrs at Taj .. is that ample time for it?
How comfortable was doing Jaipur-Agra-Jaipur in time you mentioned .. overall looks your onward journey was pretty fast.

Thanks a lot for the nice words. Good to know that you liked the summary part.

We did not find the need to spend more time in Taj. As I mentioned in my post, the experience outside spoiled our mood. Also, people were not allowed to stand inside the mausoleum. This place deserves to be managed better.

Onward journey was OK but got delayed in the return journey due to a railway crossing and unruly traffic inside a town. Jaipur - Agra - Jaipur is definitely doable.

Beautiful trip and travelogue Pramod. We.We recently undertook a Delhi road trip too. You seem to have spent considerable amount of time in places en-route where as ours was more of a point to point drive.Well in our next trip will keep your kind of plan in mind. Enjoyed reading this.

Wonderful trip, hats off to you and the family. Very nice travelogue with excellent pictures, thanks for sharing

On day 1, what was the route you took to reach Thane ?
Did you get on to the Thane-Belapur road via Vashi or some other routing that HVK suggested ?

Knowing HVK and his choice of bypassing Mumbai, It has to be Expressway Exit - Kalamboli - Turbhe - Thane Belapur Road - Airoli Bridge - Eastern Expressway - Thane.

I am more than sure Pramod would have taken the above route which still is the most sensible option opposed to taking the NH4 all the way via Mumbra which is a big pain anyway.

Thanks Parag for the update. This is the exact route that we took.
