    The guides u get for 200rs max, do not pay more. The photographers rip u off so careful. It's a must watch. Wear colorful clothes to get amazing pictures. Sovereign u get for 25rs , so do not pay 100

    The place is great, and you could stay here for hours at one of the wonders of the world. The best time to go is winter. In July or August, the heat will kill you, but the Taj is definitely worth it.

    Best time to go is bright and early. Avoid the crowd and you get to see the taj change from light blue into golden yellow as the sun rises. We hired a tour guide for 200 Rs that got us pass the line.

    The Taj has as many shades as any kind of beauty can ever have! It is Pinkish in the morning, milky white in the evening and golden when the moon shines. Its beauty can't b expressed in words.

    Frame the taj mahal with the arches of the white stone benches in the garden platform rather than the doorway first coming in - you have to get under the bench on your belly but it's a great shot!

    Come early. Gates open at 5:30am in the morning, sunrise is the best time. Taj Mahal looks beautiful and the stone changes color. Take booties before entering so u don't have to remove ur shoes.

    If you are coming here, don't forget to purchase some leather goods, visit to RedFort and Buland Darwaja. Enjoy the best sweet Petha here which is world famous for its flavour and taste

    Go early in the morning to enjoy the peace and quiet. The sunrise is beautiful and there are less people there. Anytime the hawkers come up to you anywhere in India just ignore them. Say nothing

    Get the tourist guide to tell the history of this monument. It cost only about USD10 for 2-hours tour inside the Taj Mahal compound. It's worth it.

    The gorgeous view, the gates around the Taj. Take time to actually see the intricate marble work. It is fabulous.

    They don't allow electronic devices, objects with faces, food, markers and highlighters, matches, and a lot more inside. Video camera has extra charge (you can bring your phone in though for free).

    It's beauty exceeds any photo that could ever be taken of it. Go there in a gov't prepaid taxi and get a gov't-approved guide. It's an excellent day trip so long as you stay off the streets.

    Always remember to enter from the "South Gate" you find absolutely no rush whatsoever... It comes from the Labour Bazaar i.e. The labourers who constructed Taj Mahal! A Guide is always beneficial!!

    Look for the VIP bench. Princess Diana started a trend sitting on this bench, ever since, world leaders have struck a pose on this photo spot - the closest that allows all the minarets into the shot

    If you're going the 1st time, do remember to take a Guide... They let you in real quickly! The Story they tell you is must listen as there are tons of misconceptions! ₹300/- wouldnt hurt you much!!
  • Kyrre G.
    Most beautiful building I've ever seen! Got a very nice guided tour from "Dave", just make sure you don't get overcharged, give no more than 500inr for the guide.

    So much bigger in person. It's not necessary to go right at sunrise since they don't open the gates until it's up. But go before the buses from Delhi arrive

    As you make your way through the first gate, allow your eyes to adjust to the bright light as you see the monument through the gate. The first sight of it was so emotional & so moving, I cried.

    Try to avoid during holidays like Diwali- the crowds will crush you! early morning in the summer is a better bet, and take a horse-driven tonga to the gate if you can!

    This lot is my most memorable place.. Apparently each person would be shocked by this one. People are like ants near it. Its architect was an iranian engineer in those times 👍✌️🙏

    tho many will hassle you, you don't need a guide. just get in, and discover the place for yourself, many of the guides give you wrong info, and would ask for high prices. wikipedia could come in handy

    As your bags/rucksack will get checked at the entrance, make sure, you don't have books, games, food with you. they will take it. with luck you'll get it back.

    Gorgeous experience. But make sure that you don't have your laptop with you. Security doesn't allow it and you'll have to leave it in a clock room 500 meters from entrance.

    A hotel with Taj Mahal view on the roof is a MUST-DO choice!! A guide is necessary if u want to take photos, and our guide only charge us 50rps for 2~3hour-tour in Taj Mahal.

    Perhaps is better to plan one stop visit to Agra, just to watch the Taj Mahal. And when you come out run faster than the street sellers. If you want to buy something, try the local sport of bargaining

    Go early if u want less crowd. Queue as early as 5AM. Tripods not allowed inside. Its best not to bring in any bag to go through the tight Security faster. No smoking at the Taj.

    Try to arrive at the ticketing ofice early at 6am, then take the free bus ride to the Taj Mahal entrance - don't use the touts offering horse ride or camel ride to the Taj Mahal entrance.

    From afar, it's a serene oasis. When there, you're in a maelstrom of moving bodies. Don't be gulled by the 'professional' photographers: they're too expensive, their pictures are mostly crap.

    The colour is dull in rainy days, be you can still get the deflection of Taj Mahal from the water.

    Don't enter through the West gate! Walk 500m to the south gate, there's practically no line. I didn't book a guide. The Taj feels more like a piece of art than a page of history.
