Please believe everything you here about the Taj - just awesome. We went in April when the queues were much smaller that in peak tourist season.

“Surrounding not so good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2012

The Taj Mahal itself is a wonder but the place where we need to wait for the returning electric car to the parking lot is smelly and it upsets the stomach so take precautions. And also be careful of what you buy in the small handcraft shops there, they sell small TAJ MAHAL made in chalk and they say its in marble.

“One of the seven modern wonders of the world!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2012

I happened to get into a security line that was moving very slowly due to the agents ultra thoroughness and missed the sunrise over the Taj. This was a bit frustrating, but I guess I was safe. Not all of the agents were as thorough as this one though. The Taj is breath taking beyond words. Was confused though by signs that pointed Indian tourists in one direction and foreign tourists in another. No one really paid attention to those signs. The Taj is a definite highlight!!

“Don't go to India without seeing this!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2012

Go early so it is not so crowded. Also be sure to have your taxi take the drive to see the Taj Mahal from the back, across the river.
