Spectacular sight! First trip to the Taj Mahal, a World Heritage Site



I used the Diwali holidays to go to the Taj Mahal for the first time in my life.

The Taj Mahal was more spectacular than I had imagined.

The Taj Mahal is one of the must-visit places in India.

If you have friends who are interested in India, I definitely recommend the Taj Mahal!

How to get to the Taj Mahal

Since I live in Bangalore, I flew from Bangalore to Delhi and called a taxi from Delhi to Agra, where the Taj Mahal is located.

Delhi Airport
Happy Diwali

With the app "Make my trip", you can book a taxi by setting your destination, pickup location, and time.

The journey from Delhi to Agra

When I looked it up on Google Maps, it was said that it can be reached in about 4 hours by car, but the road was congested probably because I left Delhi around 14 o'clock, and in my case it took 5 hours.

Also, the driver said that he was hungry and took a break on the way.

Such freedom is also a good thing in India, good or bad lol

If you go by car, I recommend early in the morning、、、 I stayed at the hotel "Taj Hotel & Convention Centre, Agra".

It is located about 2 km from the Taj Mahal, so I recommend it!

Let's go to the Taj Mahal!

The Taj Mahal is open from 6am.

There was a golf cart from a place near the hotel, so they took it to the entrance gate.

Hop on the cart and travel to the gate

Golf carts also seemed to run from 6 a.m. and left when they were full.

I heard that the Taj Mahal would be full of people soon, so I went in time for the 6 o'clock entrance time.

Surprisingly, it gets cold in the morning, so if you go early in the morning, it is recommended to bring a light jacket.

I bought tickets for the Taj Mahal online in advance.

ticket and head to the Taj Mahal!

It was awesome to say the least!!

In the end, I was at the Taj Mahal from 6 a.m. to 9:3、、、0 a.m. lol

I took pictures in various places and toured the Taj Mahal.

Breakfast at the hotel was until half past ten, so I hurried back to the hotel and ate a breakfast buffet lol

I was satisfied to spend a relaxing time while drinking alcohol at the roof bar of the hotel from the evening.

We were also able to see the Taj Mahal from the roof bar.
