  • Tips
    • Take a visit to the Musamman Burj, an octagonal tower in Agra Fort, for views of the Taj Mahal
    • Mehtab Bagh allows for beautiful views across the river of the Taj Mahal
    • Make sure you negotiate all fees before getting into a car or rickshaw. It’s very easy to alter your trip. Just take a map and show your driver where you would like to visit and ask them to wait for you.
    • See a sunrise or sunset tour of the Taj Mahal, but make sure to be there early (6am), as the queue gets long very quickly. You can also opt for a guided tour or skip the line tour.
    • Small bags can be taken inbut you’ll need to pass through a security check before going inside. Men and women have separate lines
