India’s most popular attraction, The Taj Mahal, is usually a mausoleum in Agra that’s constructed under Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal who died after having your baby to their son. The Taj Mahal (or just “Taj”) is recognized as the world’s finest illustration showing Mughal architecture and was recently voted as among the New Seven Wonders of the World.
The Taj Mahal grounds are open each day from 6am to 7pm, except on Fridays whether it is closed for prayer. It is also open for night viewing when we have a full moon as well as the two days before (unless among those days falls on the Friday or Ramadan)
Agra is really a major railway station and trains can be obtained from Agra to almost several different cities of India. Fast trains (such as the luxurious Shatabdi Express) can be obtained between Delhi and Agra as well as the distance might be covered in around 3 hours. Agra has two major stations, namely Agra Cantt and Agra Fort, visitors should confirm the departure station printed about the ticket to prevent any confusion.
Taxis can be available from Delhi/Jaipur and also the quality of road on Agra-Delhi section is great. However, the distances are more than people expect so allow about four hours for your journey by car from Delhi.
State transport buses and in addition private buses regularly ply between Agra along with the nearby cities.
