Taj Mahal: US President Donald Trump visits the ‘monument of love’ in Agra

US President Donald Trump has visited the historic Taj Mahal in the northern Indian city of Agra.
This was the second stop in Mr Trump’s 36-hour long trip, which is his first official visit to India.
He arrived in the country earlier in the day, landing in Gujarat state, where he was greeted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The two leaders will conduct diplomatic talks on Tuesday, which are expected to deepen ties between their countries.
Mr Trump received a colourful welcome in Agra, which included dancers dressed as peacocks and horses.
While Mr Modi was not present, he was greeted by a close ally of his, Yogi Adityanath, the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, the state where Agra is located.
The Trumps then left for the Taj Mahal, a 17th Century marble mausoleum built by Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan, in memory of his queen, Mumtaz Mahal.
