The Taj Mahal is India's architectural crown jewel, and the world’s favourite monument to love. No visit to India is complete without seeing its elegant domes, exquisitely carved white marble arches and columns, and ornate inlays and mosaics.

A monument to the undying love of one man – Moghul emperor Shah Jahan – for his wife, the Taj Mahal stands on the south bank of the Yamuna River just outside the city of Agra, and is actually a vast mausoleum that contains her tomb at its heart. To this day, it's a beautiful, majestic sight - at its most enchanting at sunset and sunrise when the marble gleams in the half-light.

Construction of the entire Taj Mahal complex took 21 years, from 1632 to 1653, and the site includes formal gardens, a mosque and a guest house. The site is open from 6am to 7pm on weekdays except on Fridays when only the mosque is open. It's also open at night for the five days around each full moon, when the marble appears to turn a delicate blue. Petrol and diesel vehicles are no longer allowed near the Taj Mahal, but electric buses, rickshaws and even horsedrawn carriages are on offer at the parking lots. The tourist entry fee is currently 1100 rupees, plus an extra 200 rupees if you want to go inside the main mausoleum.

Almost all of our India tours include visits to the Taj Mahal. So travel to India, and to the Taj Mahal, with us and see one of the Wonders of the World for yourself.
