Create an itinerary including Taj Mahal
One of the most iconic sites on the planet, Taj Mahal stands as an enduring and remarkable example of Islamic architecture in the country--it's also a World Heritage Site. Constructed between 1632 and 1653 by Emperor Shah Jahan, the mausoleum pays tribute to his beloved wife. Visit the expansive complex on the banks of the river and marvel at the 73 m (240 ft) tall structure and its surrounding minarets, covered in distinctive white marble. Explore the grounds and take in the view of the world-renowned structure, complete with a bulbous dome, from multiple angles. Note the Islamic calligraphy, colorful lattice works, raised motifs, and tiles adorning the exterior of the building. Afterwards, step under the main dome to see a vaulted ceiling above the intricately carved tombs of the Shah and his wife. To visit Taj Mahal and get the most from your holiday in Agra, create itinerary details personal to you using our Agra online vacation planner.

  • There aren't enough words to describe the actual beauty of this structure - truly a marvel! Easily the most impressive building I've seen in my life! Of course, everyone should see this at least once....  more

  • Marvellous piece of Architecture. In India there many places with great architecture. This monument is worth visiting. Better to book online tickets and avoid long queue. Early morning is best time to visit less crowded and peaceful. Drinking water is available inside gate no need to carry bottles avoid plastic.
  • No doubt it's one of the 7 wonders of the world. Spectacular, Beauty created with great architectural skills. Hire a guide there and you will get so much more to know. It will take around 1hour 30 minutes for a full tour with a guide. It has been created so thoughtfully ages ago that you can't imagine. The symmetry in architecture, the 2D designing giving 3D illusions, the carvings of gems and the way they glow in light, I was so amused to see all that which I didn't know earlier. I admire the beauty but more than that the architectural skills. Must visit atleast once in a lifetime..
