The Taj Mahal is an architectural masterpiece which attracts thousands of visitors every day. Visiting Taj Mahal is often a dream for everyone as this historical mausoleum is identified as the symbol of love all over the world. The Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan built this huge mausoleum in loving memory of his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal. This architectural marvel, which also happens to be the UNESCO World Heritage Site, immortalizes love.
One can visit the Taj Mahal at any time of the year, but it is recommended to visit it during the winter months, i.e., November to February to avoid the scorching heat and torrential rains.
Generally, it is perceived that Taj Mahal is named after its creator, Shah Jahan. But that's not true as it is named after the pet name of Shah Jahan's beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal. Originally named as Arjumand Banu Begum, she was later christened as Mumtaz Mahal, meaning "Crown of the Palace". And Taj Mahal is supposed to be a shorter version of her new name, Mumtaz Mahal.
Taj Mahal is accessible to all every day from sunrise to sunset except Friday. Every Friday the Taj Mahal is closed and is only accessible for Muslims to attend prayers in the afternoon.
The cenotaphs honoring Mumtaz Mahal and Shah Jahan are enclosed in an eight-sided chamber ornamented with pietra dura (an inlay with semi-precious stones) and a marble lattice screen inside the main tomb of Taj Mahal. But the truth is that the main chamber shelters the false sarcophagi of the emperor and empress and the actual graves are at a garden level.
Taj Mahal can be viewed at night for only 5 nights in the month, i. e. on the full moon night, two days before it and two days after it. However, the option of night viewing is not available on Fridays or during the month of Ramzan. The night viewing is made accessible for only 4 hours from 8:30 pm to 12:30 am. Only 400 people can enjoy night viewing at one night as 8 groups are formed of 50 people each and the time duration for each group is 30 minutes. Tickets for the same can be bought a day (24 hours) before the night viewing between 10 am to 6 pm from the office of Archaeological Survey of India.
Day - Taj Mahal is opened 30 minutes prior to the sunrise and is closed 30 minutes prior to the sunset on all days. For general visitors, Taj Mahal remains closed on Fridays.
Night - Taj Mahal can be viewed for only 5 nights in the month, i. e. on the full moon night, two days before it and two days after it. However, the option of night viewing is not available on Fridays or during the month of Ramzan. It is accessible at night for only 4 hours from 8:30 pm to 12:30 am.
One can visit Taj Mahal wearing shoes but for entering the main mausoleum, one needs to remove them. Shoe covers are provided to foreigners with tickets.
The Taj Mahal is an ivory-white marble mausoleum built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in loving memory of his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal. It is said to be the finest one among all Mughal creations. The architecture of this huge mausoleum is one-of-its-kind and makes the monument famous all over the world. In Arabic, the Taj Mahal is known as "Crown of Palaces".
The Taj Mahal is turning yellow because of air pollution, blemishing of marble, environmental neglect and wear and tear as millions of tourists visit Agra to view it every year. Moreover, since Taj Mahal is a centuries-old monument, discoloring of marble is a normal phenomenon as marble used in building Taj Mahal consists of several minerals, which get oxidized over time. Another cause that can be attributed for the deterioration of the monument is rain.
