Tips that you need to know before visiting Taj Mahal



Tips that you need to know before visiting Taj Mahal

Is there a view more iconic, more elegant, more charming and magnificent than the Taj Mahal? 

Honestly speaking, we can’t think of one. Out of many monuments, there is no such mausoleum which was dedicated in the name of love, the building is a masterpiece built with high quality of white Makrana Marble, for one’s favourite wife… There is no better reason to travel than seeing its glory in close up. It is a fascinating art, built-in Agra, India between 1631 and 1648. It is the perfect moment to take some stunning photos. To help visitors prepare for their Taj Mahal tours, we have prepared a short guide.

BEFORE YOU ARRIVE AT THE TAJ MAHAL:

  • Patience is the key before you visit be prepared to be enclosed by hundreds or thousands of people, including Indian men, women and children who may ask to take photos with you. The entry queue can be slightly longer during peak season but as long as you are mentally ready, you will be fine. 

WHAT TO BRING TO THE TAJ MAHAL:

  • It is better you keep your valuables in the hotel always. There are lockers available at the Taj but it’s best to have minimal belongings with you when you visit so you don’t have to spend too much time checking in.

You can get these essential following in one small bag:

  • Money
  • Water
  • Medicine
  • Camera
  • Phone

WHAT TO WEAR TO THE TAJ MAHAL:

There is no dress code as such but you should still be respectful. If you want to enter the mosque, you need to cover your head, shoulders and knees. The weather in Agra gets hot and there is very little shade, so wear light clothing and make sure you wear sunscreen. Agra gets very cold in winter (Nov-Feb) so warm clothes are suggested if you visit at this time.

OTHER THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW:

  • No food is allowed inside.
  • Cigarettes and lighters are also not allowed.
  • Camera holders and tripods including additional lighting equipment needs prior permission. Photography inside the mausoleum is prohibited. Electronics except cameras and small video cameras are not allowed.

Beware of thieves and rude shopkeepers. It’s a bustling, high-pressure area, but keep your gags about you and you won’t need to worry about anything!

WHEN YOU ARE AT THE TAJ MAHAL:

  • Go early, wait for space to explore and photograph if possible get yourself away from the crowds. If you walk around to the right side of the Taj as you approach the east gate, you can get an amazing photo from the riverbank behind the Taj. Always go in groups and get a rickshaw to take you there and back at a cheap price.
  • The Taj Mahal is a place for exploring peacefully on your own or with loved ones. So, once briefing is done by your guide, spent some time inside Taj around 2-3 hours. There are many ways to make a good experience on the trip, special and memorable for travellers.
  • The Taj has such beauty, every time you see it, it looks different due to the direction of the sunlight. It is such a lovely view.
  • Those looking for optimum conditions we recommend you try visiting the Taj Mahal at sunrise on a clear day.

TIPS FOR TAKING PHOTOS AT THE TAJ MAHAL:

  • Everyone wants to capture an iconic shot of themselves at the Taj Mahal. You know the one – where you sit on the bench and the glory of the marble mausoleum forms the backdrop.
  • But if you are into creativity and photography craze there are tons of different angles worth seeking out.

WHAT TO DO IN AGRA:

  • The Taj Mahal is the centre of attraction in this northern Indian city. But the Agra Fort is also astoundingly beautiful, especially if you didn’t get a chance to go to the Red Fort in Delhi. It is a 16th-century built Mughal monument and a UNESCO World Heritage site. All of this and so many exciting things to do at Agra, at Sushant Travels we try to make your trip most memorable one. Book Agra Tour Packages or Delhi to Agra Tour Packages to explore more at Agra.
  • Besides being located on the Golden Triangle tourist circuit, there is nothing much to do in Agra than in many other Indian cities. Because of the pollution caused by the heavy industry and you would not like to spend too long at such place. To explore more exciting things try Golden Triangle Tour Packages from Sushant Travels.

WHERE TO GO OUTSIDE OF AGRA:

  • Various popular destinations for only a few hours drive away from the Taj Mahal are available. Few of these include Orchha, Jaipur and Pushkar these places are tranquil and beautiful.
  • Orchha is a kind of town that often the travellers seek. 
  • Chaturbhuj Temple in Orchha is quite famous
  • Jaipur is well-known as the ‘Pink City’, it is the capital of Rajasthan state. It is full of anarchy, charm and unique architecture. Few popular places to visit in Jaipur are the hilltop Amber Fort, walking through bustling bazaars and shopping artistic things and a hot air balloon ride over the city will make it a perfect outing.
