Taj Mahal Tours, Trips & Vacation Packages
The Taj Mahal is a must-see on most India itineraries, and it will probably be the first stop on your Agra tour. It is well worth visiting several times, at different times of day, as its moods vary from dawn to dusk to night-time. Begin your Taj Mahal tour by viewing it from across the Yamuna River at Mehtab Bagh, a beautiful Mughal garden, perfectly aligned with the Taj and filled with fruit trees, walkways, pavilions, pools, and fountains.
The Taj is at its most alluring at dawn, often shrouded in mist before being bathed in a soft pink glow at sunrise. As its vast marble facades slip into the shadow, or reflect the sun, the color changes from a cold milky white to rosy hues to a golden cream to a dazzling brilliance. At full moon, the dome of this majestic ‘monument of love’ shimmers with a pearl-like luster.
