Has to be seen to be believed. Most beautiful building I've ever seen.

You wouldn't think it could be, given how many pictures of it you have seen, but it really is.

We hired a guide via our driver and this is the best way to go. I talked to friends who didn't have a guide and they didn't learn as much. Fabulous and a must see. Second to the Sistine Chapel Michelangelo for me!

My Indian friend pointed out that they have a smog and particulate counter located in the Taj on a wall. Our guide told us they moved all industries out of Agra to preserve the Taj. I only wish regulation of particulates would be done in India throughout.

worth going to india just to see this - a must for your bucket list. BUT beware what you take with you, they took batteries out of my torch for 'security ' but only took one not all three !!!!! and are happy to let camera batteries in - rediculous. also if you do happen to have something banned eg a knife ( for peeling apples) you can put in in a locker room - which is half a kilometer back down the road. TAKE NOTE. and then enjoy

Hii all!!!!
we visited India in Dec '11 for 12 days with Car Rent India who was our travel agent. we were advised to book early as it was high season in india and we were glad that we did. we thoroughly enjoyed our trip. our driver Mr Mukesh (MK) was well aware of all routes we wanted to visit. He was very careful all the time and took care of us. Not forgetting about his excellent driving skills. we were provided lots of facility and we really really liked everything. we booked our tour through their website and they were the quickest in response. Mr Ashok Gupta is a very nice man. Thank you for arranging our travel. we appreciate your effort. we will surely recommend your company to our friends and i recommend everyone wishing to visit India to contact Car Rent India.
Thankyou for everything Ashok and Mukesh!!!!
All the best
