This performance is presented for tourists and consists of some lively Bollywood singing and dancing interspersed with a somewhat over-the-top theatrical performance about the origins of the Taj Mahal. This was a blatant tourist trap.

I got the opportunity to see the show. It was like heaven. Stage was so beautiful and all the performances were adorable. Good thing is that although the show is in Hindi, they have audio translators to 12 foreign languages. I would term it resurrection of Theater art in India. Must see,

my group was charged $35 for the show in which the acting was so bad it was funny. The only saving grace was the Taj Mahal replica at the end, but we had to sit through an hour of tortuous music to see it. Save your money, or better yet visit Mother Theresa's orphanage and give the money to them.

Seated front row we enjoyed the stories of Shah Jahan and Mumtaz, the lovely costumes and the beautiful decor. Using the headlines for english texts was not easy because the volume of the music on stage was too loud. Anyway, the story was easy enough to follow

It was nice show, however my expectations were more, probably I was comparing it with Kingdom of Dreams experience.

Every time I go for shopping in Agra, I feel that I am getting ripped off. Now, I have found a place where I feel comfortable taking my clients and friends. Superb collection and service levels. Prices are negotiable...so request for a bargain. Ask for Mr.Vivek . He know the history of Agra, the artisans behind the masterpieces and very... More

I attended this show with a tour group of 15. We were charged 2,500 rupees which was collected by our guide. He must have skimmed off the top. Interesting to have the variety of translations by headphone but the Hindi from the stage was far too loud to understand anything over the headphones. I thought the show itself was innovative...

It was a great show. There was too much dance. To make it interesting they could add how Mumtaj married Janagir and more historical contents, Reduce dance part of it.

We visited kalakriti to watch their play on shahjahan and mumtaz's love story and I must say that kalakriti became the highlight of our trip apart from the taj mahal ofcourse. We booked gold class tickets which are front row and give u a chance to dress up as shahjahan or mumtaz and watch the play, a delight for kids... More
