“The TAJ is amazing”
Reviewed November 23, 2011

Its reflection in the water provides fabulous photo opts. Beware - Going inside the Taj (after standing in line for 30 minutes) felt more like a Haunted House as there is no light and the floor is uneven.

“Spectacular sight amazing wonder of the world”
Reviewed November 21, 2011

Everything about the Taj is spectacular - do go early either sunrise although it was misty at 6am so by 7 its starting to clear up. Sunset is the next best time to visit. Disliked the segregation of men and women in the queue but that is forgotten when you get through the gate and see the amazing building.

As they say - photos just don't do it justice! Carving and inlay is unbelievable!

“The Taj Mahal is a real Wonder.”
Reviewed November 21, 2011

We visited the Taj Mahal on 31 Oct 2011. Our group arrived at 5.45am and already a long queue of about 100 people were infront of us. So do go early if you want to catch the sunrise without the crowd.

The Taj was really magnificient when the sun light strike on the white marble, and no wonder that it is the Seven Wonders of the World. The design was synmetrical in every way except for a prominent feature right in the centre of the Taj. So as not to take the surprise away, you have to see it for yourself.

Taj Mahal is real worth visiting, although we have to endure a five hour bus journey from New Delhi to Agra. This is well worth a visit.
