“u have to see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

If you are in India you should definitly visit the Taj Mahal. We thought that it would be just a building being famous, but when you enter the area it is just overwhelming. We visited at sunrise and it was tremendously beautiful and we were extremly impressed, despite there being so many tourists.

“The taj”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Built by Shah jahan this tomb located in agra has magnificent symmetry and looks the same from all sides.It's height is the same as its width and the minarets surrounding it just add to the grandeur of this structure.Originally built only for Mumtaz Mahal it's tomb was spoilt when Aurangzeb laid Shah Jahan to rest next to her instead of building a seperate tomb for him.

“An unforgettable place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

We went to the Taj Mahal at sunrise and stayed for many hours. Whilst there were lots of other visitors there too it does not feel crowded as the grounds are extensive. It is just the most beautiful place we've ever visited and leaves you with emotional memories.
We also viewed the Taj Mahal at sunset from across the river at the site of the ruins of the "black" Taj Mahal. This also is a must see option as you get an idea of the scale of the monument from a different perspective.
