Visiting the Taj Mahal was a highlight of my time traveling in India. A UNESCO World Heritage Site and wonder of the world, the Taj Mahal is one of the things not to be missed on a trip to India. It is widely recognized as the jewel of Muslim art in India. Seeing the Taj in person was pretty marvelous.
It’s easy to do a day trip from Delhi to the Taj Mahal, or book a night in a room in nearby Agra if you want to try for a sunrise or sunset visit. I would pre-book a room in advance for Agra, as we found is a huge hassle to drive around trying to find some place to give us a decent rate. Pizza Hut and beers was our saving grace during our night in Agra. 😉
