Agra hosts First International Balloon Festival
Visitors from across the world thronged the Taj city Agra, as the first International Balloon Festival has begun. The skies above the iconic monument of love-Taj Mahal got dotted with colourful hot air balloons. The festival attracted foreign tourists who were delighted to take a glimpse of the marble monument. However, thick haze restricted the view. A three-day festival saw the participation of 15 designed balloons in various shapes from 12 countries.
