I am sure more words not needed. Electric cars for the last km to cut pollution. Persistent but not aggressive salesmen on approaches. Why are tourists charged several times more than Indians to visit? Long queues to get in at security checkpoints. Photographers (too) plentiful

Pictures doesn't justify what it looks like with your real eyes. Its truly and most definitely a beautiful work of art. No wonder why it is one of the seven wonders of the world. Seems like Indian Govt. is working hard to conserve and restore. Just be careful, keep your water, wallet and drinking water safely.

We went in the morning on our one year wedding anniversary. It is by far one of the most beautiful sights I've ever seen. A must see.

Amazing place with an amazing vibe in the air. You don't need to be checking on trip advisor for this one. We went early for sun rise, queued at 6am (sunrise 630), but didn't let us in til 630 which was grim. Air was very misty anyway so didn't miss much and once you're in there, all was forgiven.

The Taj Mahal is the best thing I have ever visited. There are no words to describe just how awe inspiring it is when you see it for real. The buildings are perfectly maintained and the gardens are very tranquil. You really don't need a guide just walk around and take in the beauty. Getting in is a bit of... More

Do you have a doubt? its among the wonder of the world. Go in early morning around 5:30-6 AM to avoid rush /crowd. Avoid carrying big bags and stuff. Only go with a small handbag, camera and water. Please appoint a guide to know the Real stories of Taj Mahal.
