A photo does not do the Taj Mahal justice. It is a must see. Truly a breath taking monument to the 3rd queen.

If you visit Agra and don't go to Taj Mahal, then you don't visit Agra! Sums up everything! One of the Wonders of World is a scenic beauty. Mesmerizing! Breath Taking! Spectacular!

You can spend hours and hours watching this, taking a look around and virtually capturing each and every frame.

Tips and Tricks:
- Try to reach there max by 6am. That will not only give you an early entry and earlybird view of Sun rays falling on Taj. Plus it will also ensure you get a Parking in vacant Market area to save you from the hassles from an otherwise slightly far parking.
- Keep your water bottles Handy
- Keep your IDs handy
- Better to book tickets online in advance. Otherwise you will spend most of the time standing in the queue
- There's no extra ticket for carrying DSLR
- Most importantly, from 1st April 2018, the Govt has restricted the entry to only 3 hours in a day. Please check about that

What a trip! Highly recommended
Unique and elegant design with high precision for the tools available at that time.
The road from Delhi was so nice.
Ticket prices are more expensive for foreigners!

It's recommended to take a tour guide and I would like to recommend Mr. Azhar Khan at Taj Imperial Guide whose a government certified guide.

Sincerely,
Raed

We visited this beautiful monument at around 9am and although there were many people viewing it certainly wasn't unacceptably crowded. Breathtaking is an understatment and anyone thinking about going rest assured you certainly won't regret it. Obviously you can't see everything but it doesn't matter because when you are there it is magnificent and somehow extremely humbling.

There are many sights around the world that look as good in real life as they do in a photograph. That simply doesn't do justice to the Taj Mahal. The Taj Mahal is one of the most beautiful things you will ever see! It is simply stunning! Words cannot describe how beautiful this building is, nor the atmosphere that surrounds it - even with thousands of other people being there at the same time. If it isn't on your bucket list yet, add it!
