Earlier yesterday, the Facebook founder began his trip to India with a visit to the Taj Mahal in Agra and described it as 'even more stunning' than he had expected.

Zuckerberg, who arrived in India to deepen links with a country that is home to the largest number of Facebook users outside the US, said he had 'always wanted to see' the Taj Mahal.

"I'm in India for our Townhall Q&A tomorrow, and I decided to visit the Taj Mahal. I've always wanted to see this," he had said in his Facebook post yesterday.

He described the country's most-photographed and photogenic monument as "even more stunning than I expected. It's incredible what people can build -- and what love can motivate us to build."

He also posted picture of him sitting in front of the Taj Mahal that was built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in the 1600s.
