Business Description

If you are visiting the country for the first time or are on your tour from Delhi then a visit to the Taj Mahal in Agra is probably on your itinerary. And it should be! Situated on the Yamuna River, this stunning architectural marvel is one of the Seven New Wonders of Earth for a reason. While the monument is a crowded attraction, many tourists are Indians who visit their own country. You will get a chance to socialize with pleasant Indian families, which can be the highlight of your exploration. Attracted by the beauty of the rare creations of white marble, 7 to 8 million travelers visit this prominent site every year. Here are some tips that you should know before taking the Taj Mahal Sunrise Tour. We hope this helps you make your experience as remarkable as possible. 1. Arrive at the Ticket Booth early We suggest visiting the Taj Mahal first thing in the morning, and there will be less public, excellent lighting, and you'll avoid the afternoon heat (which usually starts around 9 a.m.). Arrive at the ticket window as early as possible. Even though the ticket window is 1 km from the entrance of the monument, it is not a bad stroll. But there are many rickshaw pullers, which you cannot reach on foot, so you can hire them. The security gates of the Taj Mahal open exactly 30 minutes before the actual sunrise. So if sunrise is supposed to be 7 a.m., the entrance gates will open exactly at 6:30, and the queues are always long in front of the entrances for potential Taj Mahal sunrise visit visitors. So, wake up early and reach the gate of the monument at least an hour before sunrise. Therefore, you will not only beat the crowd but be among the first travelers to the monument. 2. Smog and Fog The best time to explore North India is between October and March, when the days are pleasant and the evenings cool. December and January can be foggy, so the dawn and sunrise of the monument can be seen. In addition, the smog covering Delhi, Agra and adjoining areas in November (due to stubble burning) can also obstruct viewing at any time of the day. It's hard to forecast, but beware of these seasonal interferences. Usually, most foreigners go in search of the Taj from December to March, but the famous tomb is busy throughout the year. 3. Beware the Local "Guide" There are regional brokers who will approach foreign nationals for guidance assistance. Be careful, as the government does not allow them, has little understanding of English, and provides false information. Many will not mention the service fee in advance, resulting in disappointment and bargaining after the trip. Instead, hire a guide in advance through a qualified company. 4. Bring Small Things With You to Visit the Taj Mahal The guards at the entrance of the monument will examine you thoroughly. So the most useful tip for Taj Mahal sunrise visit is to bring only the essentials like – mobile phone, camera, wallet. Follow your Agra travel guide's guidance regarding the prohibited things during your visit to the Taj Mahal. Keep everything else in your car/hotel room before visiting the tomb. 5. Go straight to the Taj Mahal Royal Gate After a tight security check, go to the royal gate of the Taj Mahal. Try to be quick, overtaking the other visitor as you will encounter an incredible view of the sunrise of the Taj Mahal. For a more comfortable trip, book your tour package from our Tours from Delhi. 6. Later to the Royal Guest House After a fascinating view and some unforgettable photos of the monument at the royal gate, head to the building on the right of the monument, known as the Royal Guest House. Your guide will try to tell you the monument. Ask her to stay for a while and go straight to the royal guest house. Here you will get to see the best angle of the day's early sun rays crossing the Memorial Marble and the glitter of the fascinating stones in the facade. Find a place to sit in the royal guest house and peacefully watch the white marble change its color in the morning. Appreciating the monument you can inform your guide to address the story and hear its exciting story. Sit on a stone bench facing the sight and listen to the guide. 7. Be prepared to be separated from your partner There is a line for men and women at the entrance to the East Gate, and the women's line usually takes longer than the bathroom lines. If you are traveling with the opposite sex, make sure you are prepared to disconnect and make the meeting place on the other side of the security check as it gets increasingly crowded. If you are visiting the monument with kids, this entrance gets really overcrowded, so make sure to keep your kids close by so that they don't get stuck in this jam. 8. Stop here after Taj If you need a pickup after seeing the incredible crown, you won't need to look far.
