Night Viewing of Taj Mahal

Monday, June 18, 2012

There is hardly anyone in the world who has not heard of Taj Mahal, a marvel of architecture, a UNESCO world heritage site, one of the world’s wonders and above all a true symbol of eternal love.
When you visit India, Taj Mahal is definitely on your must-see sights. Depending on the time of your visit you can discover a very different Taj Mahal for yourself.
One color melts into the other throughout the day. In the morning the colors of Taj Mahal are pinkish, the afternoon shines with milky white and in the night, when the moon shines, Taj Mahal is all golden.
Taj Mahal is open to visit on any day except for Friday. But the most unique experience is to visit this beautiful marble mausoleum in the night. However, you should plan your trip accordingly if you don’t want to miss this opportunity.
Night viewing of Taj Mahal is available only 5 days each month, i.e. in the night of the full moon night and two nights before and after that.
Tickets for the night entrance are available only 24 hours (1 day) before the night viewing itself.
You can purchase tickets between 10.00 am and 6 pm at
