buying tickets for taj has to be in advance?

Hi. I hear that you have to get tickets at least 24 hours in advance? Is this a myth? Is it advisable to get tickets in advance to reduce waiting time etc? Also that you are only allowed to carry in 5 items and no guide book? Please advise thanks

To have Taj Mahal tickets in advance is wrong...but if you are going for dawn at Taj then it will help you in saving time........it is only for the night viewing on full moon occasion to have tickets 24 hours before.

You can take water,medicines,cameras,phones,I pad,guide book.....there is a long list of the things not allowed at the Taj.

Thanks

Broadly speaking you are not allowed to carry eatables, candies, tripod, cigarettes, lighter, any sharp objects, explosives, liquor, markers or any electronic gadget they don't understand they don't allow.

Sometimes there are long lines to avoid that you can buy tickets a day ahead if possible. Even if it is long line there is separate window for foriegn tourists and will hardly take 10-15mts. otherwise in day time hardly 1 or 2 persons at the window.

Our tuk tuk driver took us to the window where there was less people and we had our tickets within 5 minutes, you don't need to book beforehand.

Yes one can buy tickets of Taj Mahal in advance but it would not make much difference.

No, buying tickets in advance for Taj mahal for regular visit is not compulsory, It is only when you wish to see Taj at night during the full moon night ( as Taj opens for 5 days in night every month except Friday and in the month of Ramzaan - On Full moon night and 02 days before & after full moon night ).

Regards,

Arun
