About
The only daily live show in India. Our show "Mohabbat The Taj" is based on the story behind the construction of the love saga Taj Mahal. The 16th century era is portrayed on stage by our professional artists. We also have interpretation facilities in 10 foreign languages. The highlight of the show is that the biggest replica of Taj Mahal appears on the stage and a light and sound show mesmerizes you with the Taj in different moods. We also have an Art Gallery which has a vast collection of Indian Handicrafts especially Marble Inlay. The live display of art and making of items by the artisans will give you an enthralling experience. Artifacts made by the great artisans of the country, collected from all the regions of India, have been preserved here. If someone wants to buy any artwork according to his choice, then there is also an arrangement and we also have arrangements to deliver it to every corner of the world.

    Brilliant Performance
    Kalakriti's  Mohabbat-e-Taj performance is exceptional. For anyone who is interested in a musical history of The Taj it's a must do. The actors, the costumes, the stage, the performance ..everything is just awesome. The ticket prices are steep but then its totally worth it. And at the end the replica of Taj that is displayed is equally amazing, weighing a whopping 8 Tons+ and made over a period of 10 years, it itself is a marvel. There is also a photo ops opportunity at the end of the show.  Honestly the show requires a bit of a mature audience, the kids may not be able to appreciate the show. Also the base language is Urdu but headphone translations are available in about 11 languages.  Lastly the auditorium itself is a piece of architecture made with Makrana marble (the type of marble used for the Taj itself).

    Very interesting complex with theater in it.
    Kalakriti complex is multipurpose institution. It hosts presentation areas, exhibits, sales and a theater. We visited twice. First time we came for the presentation of the art and production of inlaid marble as well as many other products. We had a chance to view intricate inlay work on marble done in front of us. At the entrance we could see the mementos of the visits of many famous people including Bill and Hilary Clinton. We visited also their other show rooms. On another occasion we came in the evening to the theater to view the play about the history of the Taj Mahal. The theater performance was very entertaining and educational, well done, colorful and easy to follow.

    pretty good
    this was an interesting enough performance, but expensive at about AU$70 (We booked for our tour guide so no doubt he got a cut… Not sure how much it is directly) for a show that lasts about an hour to 1.5 hours. Interesting show, and it is sung in Hindi, but to keep up with the spoken bits it has headsets at each chair that have 20 languages, we had English language, and while the system works in terms of Listening to a translation the volume made it a bit hard to hear. If you’re not too worried about spending a couple of bucks on a night out, I’d recommend you do this so you can just tick it off as something done, interesting but it’s no Phantom of the Opera.

We were very lucky to be able to attend this show. It told the story of the Taj Mahal which was great and provided some context. The performers were all amazing. Highlight was being able to get a photo with the key performers at the end. Well worth it, loved it.

We went to the show - it was billed as a 'light show around the Taj Mahal'.
In reality it was a bollywood dance story show with the climax being something akin to the description (no spoiler). The performers worked hard and were pretty accomplished. The costumes were good and the choreography also.
It was not what we were expecting it was much less spectacular and liken to community theatre. It was therefore not worth the money we paid.

We are not selling our show as an activity around The Taj mahal, our show is about the Taj Mahal story. Someone mis-guided you hence you were dont found actually what you looking for. And also we are not aware how much that person charged you for our tickets. Our highest tickets category cost USD 30 only.

It's better than nothing but not by too much.

There is no acrobatics in this show, it's mostly a display of costumes.

The story in the show is extremely bland and is missing the most interesting parts behind the Taj Mahal. For example, that the Ruler had 3 wives and that she died giving birth the 14th time, and that he died while imprisoned by his son who also killed off all his brothers.

For this high price, the show should have live music, not recorded songs.

The translation system is not great. If you want a certain language, you have to sit in a certain section, often in worse than other available seats.
