    Did you know that the Taj Mahal looks pink in the morning, white in the day, and golden in the moon light?

    Go early! The taj is pearlescent and changes colors as the sun rises. It's amazing.

    The Gates open at 5:30 am, so if you want to check it out before the crowds get in, Sunrise is the best time. Also the Taj is pretty beautiful at this time :)

    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

    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

    Surreal to be here once inside. Besides large crowds, a peaceful place. Get shoe booties at the ticket booths so you don't have to take off your shoes later.

    Get here early!! By 7 a.m. there are already many people there and a queue starts to form outside. Head toward the mausoleum first and visit the gardens afterward. Enjoy the beauty of this place!

    1. Come early morning. 2. Ask for a shoe cover while taking your ticket. 3. Take a guide. 4. Don't be in rush to see everything, take your time to enjoy it. 5. Take a lot of pictures. 6. Avoid Fridays

    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!
