Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos visited the Taj Mahal in Agra, Uttar Pradesh, during his trip to India. Mr Bezos, 56, was accompanied by his girlfriend, Lauren Sanchez, during his tour of the iconic Mughal-era monument.
The two were seen posing in front of the reflective pool that leads to the Taj Mahal. Many celebrities and world leaders have posed at the same spot, including Prince William and Kate.
While Mr Bezos chose a simple suit for the visit, Lauren Sanchez wore an orange and white dress. Photographs that are being widely shared online show Mr Bezos and Ms Sanchez smiling for the cameras with the 338-year-old white marble monument in the background.

The American billionaire had earlier unveiled a fleet of electric-powered delivery rickshaws. The move came as part of Amazon's global Climate Pledge, announced in September last year.
In posts shared on Instagram and Twitter early on Monday morning, Mr Bezos announced that the company had started to roll out its fleet of electric delivery rickshaws. "Fully electric. Zero carbon," he wrote, sharing a video that shows him driving one such electric rickshaw.
Mr Bezos began his trip to India last Tuesday by visiting the memorial to Mahatma Gandhi in Delhi. During his three-day trip, he also flew kites with a group of children, visited an Amazon 'Silent Delivery Station' in Mumbai and sat down with Shah Rukh Khan and Zoya Akhtar for a forty-minute chat.Click for more trending news
