Re: A200 going to India/Taj Mahal

The best time to visit the Taj Mahal without doubt is as soon as it opens at dawn – round about 6.00 or 6.30am. The light is then at its best (a soft pink glow) and the place is not over-crowded at that time. Different photographic possibilities open as the morning develops.

The view from the other side of the river is also very good, though getting there is not easy and it is 2 miles away by road. The narrow bridge over the Yamuna River is the most crowded thoroughfare I’ve ever had the ‘pleasure’ of using. It’s a jostling mass of humanity, all thrusting into the last available square inch. However, there is a walkway alongside that is not so crowded. Our driver was anxious about the locals on the far side because he had had some trouble in the past. But things went OK.
