Think of India and you probably think of the Taj Mahal ... think of the Taj Mahal and your probabaly think of India! One of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World and an enduring Indian icon, the elegant Taj Mahal was built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his wife, Mumtaz Mahal, As most of our tours to India include a visit to the Taj Mahal, we've highlighted some of our most popular Taj Mahal tours below.
Aah - the magical Taj Mahal - simply an experience not to be missed. It took some 20,000 labourers and craftsmen 22 years to build the Taj and every detail is absorbing: the classical gardens, the reflecting pool and the elaborate patterns of semiprecious stones decorating the white marble.
The best time to view the Taj is at sunrise or sunset. On some of our group tours we have the opportunity to vist the Taj in the evening as the sun is setting. Of course on a private tailor-made holiday, you can visit the Taj Mahal whenever you choose - both morning or evening. What ever time you visit the Taj Mahal however - one thing is for certain - you will be sure to be spellbound!
