Bag for taj mahal and dress code

Hello, I will be visiting taj mahal on the 15th Feb, I was wondering if they let me carry a small bag such a cross the body bag with my phone and purse in it? Also what should I wear, do I like have to cover my shoulders and wear long trousers and sandals? Sorry for the many questions, I just want to be prepared and not turned away. Thanks

Hello Zara,

To avoid waiting time for security checking try to have small bag just to put your mobile and other needed items, camera, etc..

As for the dress code what applies on Taj Mahal applies anywhere in India, try to put something decent and comfortable .

You can take small bag inside but see that you do not have any eatables, cigarette, lighter, any sharp objects, toys, torches, wire . Good will be to carry your mobile,camera and wallet.

No dress code. However time you will be travelling will be little cooler in morning and at night so full sleeve shirt and long pants will be good.

Good morning.

Better thing to carry only phones money wallet and camera small bags are allowed and you are not allowed to carry any kind of cigarettes lighter tobacco chocolate chewing gums pen pencils marker any makeup stuffs brush toys dummies calculator flashlight pen knife there is no such dress code for Taj Mahal it is better to cover the shoulders and knees and you don't need to carry bottle of water because when you buy a ticket you'll get bottle about the free with the ticket half litre each.

And Books are not allowed also.

Small handbags/purses are fine ,but better you leave everything back in the hotel and just go with mobile/phone/camera/water/shoe covers.

There is no dress code for Taj visit but what makes you comfortable go with that...Visit early Thursday gets busy in the late hours of the day as it is closed on Fridays.

Hi Zara,

As already suggested above, you can carry a small bag/ purse alongwith you. However, there is no restrictions on dressing, just put on comfortable clothings.

Hi you can carry small bag with you. However most of the bags needs to be submitted at cloak room. Weather is perfectly fine there,I recently visited there. No need to carry heavy winter clothes.

I would suggest you wear socks and shoes rather than slippers as inside you would be asked to remove shoes before you enter the Taj Mahal.

Anyone please advise if a gimbal is allowed to carry inside. Also, is it okay if I bring along some fancy clothing to put on on the spot?

Selfie sticks are allowed but not sure about the gimbal.

A t shirt or something is allowed not a bag full of clothes. Also note any type of advertisement is not allowed inside the tajmahal.
