Taj Mahal

Agra, India

Be one of the first at sunrise. It is becoming very early very crowded and it stays the complete day crowded until sunrise. The most famous photo position is in the middle of the garden with a straight view on the Taj Mahal. You will get beautiful reflections in the water.
This photo spot is located inside a locked area. Please check the opening hours, which are around sunrise to sunset.
