A must see! Architectural wonder. Stop at Red Fort with combined ticket. Use a guide for their knowledge and expertise in pointing out interesting facts and tidbits.

What else can one say. The architecture is awe-inspiring; the immensity was unexpected. The Mughal architects and artisans at their finest hour, even if their eyes were removed after completing it (don't worry, this is a myth with no basis in history!)

Taj Mahal is just a marvelous monument. I was there with my family and we visited the Taj Mahal in full moon night as well. It looks so beautiful.

My wife and I saw the Taj Mahal twice - at sundown and the following day at sunrise, to avoid crowds, and to see the building when the light is most beautiful reflecting off of it. Absolutely the most beautiful thing you could ever see. If you ever have the chance to see it, don't pass it up!

The Taj Mahal is all who you think it is and more. You really have to experience the Taj Mahal to get a real understanding of the history of it. The grounds are immaculate. It is more than just a building or tomb.

We visited early morning, tourists from the U.S. And the orient tend to start later so it's not as busy. We got to get the Icon photos with the buildings reflected in the still water as the fountains were not turned on until mid morning.
