Can anyone let me know when is the best time to visit Taj Mahal?
Taj Mahal is in Agra which is in North India. North Indian climate is extreme. In summer time it is extremely hot, in monsoon it rains and in winter it is smoggy. This leaves you only one window to visit North India and Taj Mahal which is Feb-March.
If you need a very specific week then I would say visit Taj Mahal during the last 2 weeks of February. Weather in February is very pleasant and you will enjoy the sun as well as the places.
The festival of Holi falls in March somewhere during first half of the month. Avoid Holi during visit to Taj Mahal or Agra as entire North India is shut down during Holi and nothing works for about 3-7 days.
I visited Taj Mahal in mid March. It was quite warm during March if not hot.
Good luck and enjoy Taj Mahal, the world's most beautiful monument which you will ever see on the planet Earth.
Better visit it before it sinks into the River. Yes that's correct. Taj Mahal i shrinking in the River as it's foundations are filled with Monotony wood and as river Yamuna recedes further the wood gets dry and becomes brittle thus unstabilizing the structure.
If you are asking what time of the day is best to Visit Taj Mahal then it would be either morning, evening or full moon night.
If you visit in the morning then you might get good chance to get photos as Sun rises behind the Taj Mahal in the morning. You can get good shots in the afternoon time though.
In summer the mid day time might be too hot to visit Taj Mahal so if you are visiting Taj Mahal in the summer then either try Morning or Evening time.
I visited Taj Mahal last year in the evening of the 1st week of March and it was unforgettable experience. Taj Mahal is the most beautiful monument and it's grandeur is second to none. You just can't stop saying WOW! Awesome! The moment when you climb the stairs and stand in front of this majestic monument you just can't stop yourself expressing the feelings.
Evening time is the best as you can avoid heat which could be painful during the day time. Also it is not as crowded int he evening as it is during the morning time.
