ConsCrowds, conmen, oppressive atmosphere

There have been few occasions in my life when I have felt envious of the late Diana, Princess of Wales, but the day I visited the Taj Mahal was one of them. A celebrated photograph shows her sitting alone in front of the world-famous edifice, which was built as a monument to love, its grounds...

ConsMay get crowded in high season

The Magnificent Taj Mahal. I know my words will never match the beauty or depth of feelings aroused when you actually are standing in front of the Taj Mahal but I hope that I can convey a little about it to help you understand how what a real wonder it is and how significant this building is...

Its hard to find words to match the glory , the beauty of TAJ MAHAL. A perfect symbol of love, a TRUE wonder of world. Even a stone hearted man would melt once he knows the history behind Taj Mahal. And what a peace of mind you find on the corridors of Taj !! Its unbelievable, it feels as if...

ConsTime your first view for the less crowded times.

After reading several reviews I thought it is time to recall our visit to the Taj which is from memory so may be sketchey on detail, but there is all the necessary historical facts on other very good reviews , so this is just an old lovers memories. Jane (My very own Queen Mumtaz Mahal) and I...

Satisfactory

ProA beautiful attraction

ConsA potentially stressful experience

Although the Taj Mahal is breathtaking and beautiful, my review of it is not positive. This is because of the immense stress I felt while visiting this beautiful tourist attraction. Although my parents are both Indian, I spent all of my years in Britain until finally visiting India with them in...

ConsNone

The Taj Mahal in Agra has to be one of the classic images of India and one of the World's major landmarks. I was once told you should only really go there with a lover, but I wasn't any less in awe just because i was in a group of 20, 17 year olds. It''s one of those places, along with the Great...

“Not a place to forget”

published 02/07/2001

Pro-

Cons-

It was 1998 when I went to India, and I honestly have to say it was the best eye opening experience of my lie. It is just an excellent place to visit, some the scenes are just breath-taking. It was an organised tour 14 days and cost us £500-00 for air-flight and an extra £130 or board which...

“My trip to the Taj Mahal”

published 03/09/2001

ProThe sheer beauty of the mausoleum.

ConsNone

It had been my dream to go to the Taj Mahal for so long. Its sheer beauty seemed to grab a hold of me everytime I saw a picture of it. My eyes were fixated and I found myself unable to tear myself away from the different pictures I came across. I desperately wanted to see the amazing mausoleum...

“The Taj Consipiracy”

published 31/05/2007

ProSuperb At Sunrise

ConsBig Crowds Later in The Day,

The Taj Mahal stills stands as immaculately today as it did when it was first constructed. So the story goes, it was built by the Mogul Emperor Shah-Jahan between 1631 and 1645 in memory of his favourite wife. The mausoleum, it is said, still contains the crypt where she was eventually laid to...

ConsMind you don't slip on the smooth marble

The very best time to visit the Taj Mahal is first thing in the morning as the sun rises. The day we visited there was a slight haze which lifted quickly revealing the monument in all its beauty. Photographs are a must, the beauty of the place is so overwhelming that you feel that no picture you...

ProBreathtakingingly beautiful peice of architecture

ConsCrowded, smelly and expensive.

We went to India in September last year and ended our tour of Rajisthan with a trip to Agra and the Taj Mahal. I have to admit I wasn't looking forward to it - in my experience these things are often better in your imagination and on postcards - but that is a somewhat jaded point of view, and we...

The Best way to Travel to Agra and TajMahal is to pick up the Golden Triangle Tour Plan. Agra and Taj Mahal is just a single Day Journey and hence you won't enjoy it as much as, you would if you plan to visit ancient monuments in Delhi, Palaces and wildlife of Rajasthan. For that I would suggest this plan of 5 days http://www.travel-monitor.com/golden-triangle-tours-5d.html However, if you want only a same day tour to Agra and Taj Mahal, please go through this plan. http://www.travel-monitor.com/same-day-agra-tour.html

i visited the taj mahl about four years ago, and what a marvel it is. The building is a wonder, a superb structure, the inch by inch detail which must have taken years to do, has been largely excellently restored. i didn't think a buliding could have had such an impact on me, but this did, the...

Taj Mahal is the heart of India. And if one doesn't visits it, his Journey to India is not well served. We too offer travel and tour services to Taj Mahal & Agra in combination with Delhi, Jaipur Tours. We provide Hotel Booking as well as attractive Tour packages.
