Agra: Belgium's King Philippe and Queen Mathilde visited the Taj Mahal on Monday and spent around two hours there.

During the visit they evinced keen interest in the architectural details of the Mughal white marble marvel, that looks sparkling white after the recent mud pack beauty treatment.

Entry to tourists was suspended for over two hours. While many stood in the long queues, some left without seeing the 17th century monument of love.
