It may rain when you are here but will not last long is never for hours continuously. Viewing of Taj at sunrise or sunset depends upon the clear sky but believe me Taj is beautiful any time of the day and year. You can stay somewhere on Fatehabad road where many hotels of different categories are.It will take maximum 10-15 mts. from any hotel to reach Taj by cab. You can leave from hotel at 0520 AM to make sure that you are at gate before they open and are first few to enter the Taj. If possible can purchase entrances a day before.

For sunset can plan to go to other side of the river and sunset view is good from Mehtab Bagh.

No doubt it rains in Sept but it is a last month of Monsoon so no trouble...have some precaution.As far as the hotels are concerned there are many on the Fatehabad Road and few close to Taj Mahal---Taj Resort,The Radisson Blu,Oberoi Amar vilas and the Trident.From any hotel to parking by car.From parking to Taj Mahal you can take any type of transportation to Taj like a Camel Ride,Horse driven carriage,Golf Cart and Electric Bus.

Sunrise and Sunset time for the first 10 days of Sept----

1/9/13----5:57 10/9/13----6:01(S/R)

1/9/13----18:38 10/9/13----18:28(S/S)

Taj Mahal is beautiful throughout the day.If i were in your place i prefer Sunset due to 2 year old baby.

Greeting of the day!!!!!!!

About rain it depends on luck , if weather is clear you see both sunrise and sunset,

About rain it depends on luck, you visit both sunrise and sunset .Its your choice sunset you visit Taj from inside or from Mehtab Bag but sunrise you must visit Taj from inside. If weather is cloudy then also you visit because after sunrise it becomes very hot and to stay near the Taj the best Hotel is Amar Vilas.You can see Taj from your room and lobby also. You can buy Taj ticket from the Hotel and you will get free of cost Golf Cart to drop at Taj and to bring back to the Hotel.

F/Sikri it depends on your tour program because its on the way to Jaipur.If you will do from Agra it will take about four hour .
