We will never forget our visit to this awe-inspiring tranquil and magnificent place. Best time to visit is 7-8 am after the dawn rush and while other people are having breakfast.

Our 2nd visit after 7 years, still the wow factor as you enter the gate, utterly beautiful, leave you speachless but much much too many visitors now and it spoils this amazing place. Number of visitors should be limited.

The first view of the Taj is special and will stay in your mind for ever. The best thing we did was to get there early - about 6am, before the crowds arrived. lt is expensive for India at Rs750 per person but you get a bit off when you visit other attractions. Be sure to get your free water... More

Still the architecture is looks awesome, but the color of stone is became fade. morning time visit is more conformable as queue is less. Waiting to visit in winter as Taj will be more colorful once different colors flowers will spread up across garden in front of TAJ.

I never thought that I could spend three hours looking at a grave of a person that I didn' t know too well. The architectural ambition, the visual symmetry and the white marble reflecting sunlight are recommendable for anyone with even a remotely working eyesight.

And exactly what you would expect. Absolutely beautiful in the early morning hours at sunrise. We were told it would be easy to find an accredited guide on site, but we did not really see any. Thankfully our driver had arranged for one as we were driving to Agra. I would definitely recommend having a guide booked ahead to avoid... More

Taj is closed on fridays but I, with help of some friends, managed to sneak in. On friday only local muslims are allowed to enter for friday prayers. The good thing about India and Pakistan is that if one is friend the mountains can be moved. So I despite being a Pakistani viewed the Taj on a closed day. It... More
