6. Taj Mahal Sunrise Tour

Most often asked questions are that which is the best time to visit the Taj Mahal? Obviously dawn is the best time you can do it easily if you stay in Agra Hotel. If you want to do it from Delhi, this is possible but you have to start by the midnight taking a car.

Personally speaking I hate doing the sunrise tour in the months of December and January as it remains very misty and most often there is no Sunrise. As the Taj Mahal is a white marble building, during the foggy weather it is hard to take pictures. For other months it is very nice to visit the Taj Mahal at sunrise. Normally it takes like 2 and half hours to do sunrise tour. Just to some time you can get the Taj Mahal entry tickets before and go just with the camera.
