On Thursday, the penultimate day of his near week-long trip to India, Harrison Barnes visited the Taj Mahal in Agra.

Barnes, a forward for the Sacramento Kings, had been looking forward to visiting the historic monument right from the day he arrived.

With his visit yesterday, Barnes joins the list of NBA players like Kenneth Faried, Brook Lopez and Kevin Durant, who had visited the UNESCO heritage site in the past couple of years.

After attending the Reliance Foundation Jr. NBA National Finals and presenting the trophies at the event this past Sunday, Barnes is back in Delhi today to attend the National Finals of the fourth ACG-NBA Jump (India's national basketball talent search program).

Barnes, who is in India to promote the continued growth of basketball in India ahead of the NBA India Games 2019 in October, also spent a couple of exciting days in Mumbai.
