Stop At: Taj Mahal, Dharmapuri, Forest Colony, Tajganj, Agra 282001 India

Taj Mahal was built by the Mughal Emperor Shahjahan in the memory of paramour Mumtaj Mahal whose real name was Ajmand Bano Begum. She was given the title name as Mumtaj Mahal which signifies the Crown Palace. This tomb took 22 years time for the construction. This Epitome of love attracts the tourists for its elegant architecture and refined craftsmanship done by inlaid work done by semi precious stones in the white marble. In case the time suits you can prefer visiting the Taj Mahal at the time of dawn or dusk on account of capturing the colour change in the white marble to take instagram worthy pictures. You are suggested to bring less articles on account of saving time at the security spot during the guided tour.

Duration: 2 hours

my sister and I did the half day tour as we only had one day in Agra. S.A.M same day tours provided the tour with Shyamveer being our guide. It was amazing! Shyamveer picked us up in a clean and aircon taxi with Pradeep being our driver and we headed to the Taj Mahal. we were able to leave our bags in the taxi and they were safe at the Taj, only small bags are allowed. Shyamveer was so helpful, he paid for the electric tuktuk to the entrance to the Taj as cars can only go so far, he also helped us buy tickets for the Taj and as well as being so knowledgable and able to answer all our questions, he also acted as our photographer! he talked us through some of the history of India as a whole as well as how the Taj came to be built.
we then headed to a large shop that had a live demonstration of how the semi precious stones were inlayed into the marble, obviously this was an opportunity to buy souvenirs but there was no pressure to purchase anything.
we then headed to Agra Fort and again Shyamveer was very knowledgeable of the building, the architecture and the history of the building. Pradeep was even happy to call in to a shop so we could buy lunch on the way back to our hotel.
This is the perfect tour if you are short on time in Agra and want to see 2 of the biggest, most famous sights.
