One of the world's largest mausoleums, the Taj Mahal was completed in 1643 under Shah Jahan, who commissioned it in memory of his most beloved wife who died in childbirth. So what are the top architectural features you should watch out for?
Perhaps the most distinguishing part of the Taj Mahal, this massive feature crowning the building is popular not only in Islamic architecture but also Russian Orthodox.
The Taj Mahal is flanked by four tall minarets. In recent years, the Indian Archeological Society has expressed concern at the fact that they are beginning to tilt slightly!
The iwans are the pointed arches at the sides. If you take a closer look, you'll see they are decorated with intricate Koranic calligraphy.
The awesome tessellating patterns and sweeping geometry covering the inner walls of the Taj Mahal are proof of the confluence of science and art.
The Taj Mahal's white marble changes color with the time of day. Pastel pink or blue, dazzling white - if you spend the whole day there, you will experience the whole spectrum.
Please remember that the Taj Mahal is an Islamic building. Although no specific dress code is enforced, it's best to dress modestly out of respect - this means covering knees and shoulders.
If you want to avoid the lines, it's best to arrive at the Taj Mahal at the crack of dawn. If you're not a morning lark, don't worry - this is one of the most beautiful times of day to view the monument and its gardens.
Lockers are available, but please note that your bag is likely to be searched - no food is allowed to be brought into the Taj Mahal.
Although you might be stopping at the Taj Mahal via New Delhi, the nearby city of Agra is worth a visit, too. It's easy to combine your Taj Mahal trip with a tour to Akhbar's fort and the ghost town of Fatehpur Sikri.

What people are saying about Taj Mahal
The guide was friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable about the Taj Mahal. We also went to the miniature version, aka the Baby Taj. Another great experience and learned a lot more too. Plus no need to strain taking selfies - the guide took over that part and we got many great pictures of us both in all the best places. Totally recommend Get Your Guide for a terrific experience.
Everything promised by Get your Guide in the highlights and their detailed description of the experiences to be expected was fulfilled. From the pickup at the hotel, to being shown my seat on the train, to being met at Agra, and the return journey were all exactly as described. My guide at the Taj Mahal was brilliant and his knowledge of the history of the Taj was outstanding. The lunch provided was excellent. The only downside was the meals provided on the train. I can only strongly recommend this company for their organisational skills, friendly staff, and for their professionalism overall.
Tour with D was excellent. He was informative and extremely good at his job. Would recommend the tour.
If you would like a pain free trip to the Taj, this is it. My son & I were picked up at our Delhi hotel, taken to our high speed train to Agra, met at the other end by Islam, our guide, who spent the entire day with us, before returning us to to the train. He was knowledgeable and whisked us past long lines. Not only was there someone with us all through the day, but we were able to fit in a whole day of sightseeing and be back in our hotel by 8.30 pm.
Aman was our guide and did an excellent job teaching us about Agra, the Taj Mahal and other historic structures on this tour. Their guides and drivers help orchestrate flawlessly our movement from our Delhi hotel yo Agra and back.
