is TAJ MAHAL still open to the public?

I would like to verify with somebody, if the Taj Mahal is still open to the public or no longer.

I have heard rumors that it is closed and I just want to make sure, because then, I won't go to Agra.

If it is open, then, on which day and during which time.

Also, which ENTRY gate is the best to buy a ticket from, and enter the Taj.

can one just buy a ticket on arrival, or does one have to buy a ticket before and is there any ID required to get a ticket. (like passport, pan card ect.)

Thanks for all replies.

We just visited Taj Mahal 2 days ago. Please read their official site or in the forum because there are quite a few rules you need to observe.

Winter could be very foggy. The day before we visited our tourist guide said they could not see Taj Mahal because of the fog. Luckily, by the time we visited at 1pm and the fog has gone. Weather was just beautiful and the sun was shining.

Taj Mahal is absolutely beautiful. Have to see once in your lifetime.

Hope you have a great time like us there.
