“Getting much off the Experience”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

TAJ - Recently ranked third among top landmarks in the world, is a splendid man made wonder with a feel of love and romance. Excitement was at its peak before I saw it around 9 AM in a bright sunny day. With all words and beauty visions in back in mind seeing lively a beautiful construction is nothing short of my expectations.
Crowd was just pouring in. We had kids enjoying and taking photographs with all excitement. I think it is the early noon hours to be there without much crowd. we had taken services of a certified guide. I RECOMMEND ONE SHOULD SHELL OUT FEW BUCKS FOR A GUIDE SERVICE while visiting such a monuments, which I do every where I go.
After getting out with heart-ful of memories we visited for buying agra - PETA. its a decicious sweet made of ash gourd, do not miss it but see that you buy from a reputed shop for authentic taste. You get many flavors, Kesar peta is what i find with much lingering taste.(would have ate 1/2 kg in that day).
Do not miss out a TANGA (horse vehicle) ride there outside. We had taken tanga from my hotel to Taj that time.

It will always amaze you. Go early in the morning if not there in winter. Get a good guide. Try and see it from across the river too if you can. its a great view introduced to us by our host - owner of Bansi Home Stay

“Taj Ma Hot!”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

We visited in May and while it was exceptionally hot, it was an amazing visit. The drive from Dehli to Agra gave you a great perspective on the country (we had just arrived, first visit) and I imagine a good sense of a smaller city, in Agra. The grounds of the Taj Mahal were beautiful but be sure to bring water and an umbrella if you visit during the summer months.

No words to praise Taj's beauty. It's fabulous. Perfect time to visit Taj is in the evening during June-July
