Best Time to Visit Taj Mahal

Taj Mahal with its imposing beauty and grace beckons tourists from far lands. It is no less than a fairy tale when you hear the story of a king builds a marble edifice for his beloved queen. You can visit Taj Mahal anytime of the year. If you wish to avoid the scorching heat of the summers, October to March is best for visiting Taj Mahal.

Taj Mahal demands a day of yours. The marble edifice changes colour with every passing hour and if you want to experience the complete glory of Taj, you must spend every phase of the day here. As per folklore, the changing colours of this pure white marble structure portray the changing moods of the queen.

Here it is necessary to mention that Taj Mahal was built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan for his most loving wife, Mumtaz Mahal. The memorial stands over the graveyard of the queen and the graveyard of the monarch also lies within the same complex. With its interesting myths, elegant looks and valuable floral paintings, motifs and inscriptions, Taj Mahal demands the attention of lovers to historians.

Taj Mahal at Sunrise

As the first rays of the sun kiss the monument, Taj Mahal glows pink, giving it a celestial look; the transformation from soft grey to pink and then to soft red glow is slow and divine.

Taj Mahal at Sunset

When the sun hides behind the Taj at sunset, it gifts a golden aura to the memorial. From fiery yellow to soft orange and then to its original hue of pearl white, the change of colour is a lifetime experience for the tourists.

Taj Mahal under the moonlight

When the night sky is gentle with the soft light of the moon, bask in the silvery glow of Taj Mahal. Not only the monument looks breathtakingly beautiful on the full moon night but also portrays the mastery of the artisans of Mughal era.

Hence be at Taj Mahal just before dawn or dusk to be enthralled with its beauty.
