“Lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

Lovely memorial to love and political alliance of two very strong people - Akbar and Mumtaz. The marble is very strong, but feels soft and warm. The carved flowers are lovely. The symmetrical buildings look like they converse with each other. The whole construct seem like a memorial to two people in a never ending conversation.

“World icon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

It lived up to expectations, and is truly a world icon. We got there in the dark and queued for nearly an hour, but for some reason we were not allowed in until broad daylight, so missed the views of sunrise. Very heavy security, which is understandable.

“Do not miss the Taj Mahal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

Don't miss this. Don't even consider not going because it's a premium tourist destination. It's that because it is fantastic.

The exterior is stunning. The interior is even better.

Go early and view it from the park across the waterway, where you'll get fabulous views and then go to the site itself.

I waited 42 years to get here and had high expectations. My expections were exceeded.

“Do u really need a review”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012

Glory of Taj mahal is not dependent on anyones review, as it is already one of the 7 wonders of world.
but still some tips.
Enter through East gate,
do not visit any marble craft gallery on request of some local guide.
Drink only packed bottle water or may get loose motion.
put ur shoes in counter only or they`ll be gone, & dont pay anything on shoe counter, its free.
