Don't get me wrong it is a pretty impressive building especially when you realize it is "just" a tomb, but one of the 7 wonders of the world ?? No way !
It was a nice visit and i can tick it of my list but other than that not to bothered.
Oh and whats up with the white-tax on the entrance fee. Do you just assume we have more money than you do ? I know India is poor, but i reckon the people who visit the Taj do have a pennyor two to spend. I know it is common practice in India but still quite ridiculous

If in India, of course you should visit!
However, keep in mind that its crowded, less peaceful and if you come at the "wrong" time then the lines might be endless. They are foreigner lines to many sections (which I found to be a bit wierd so I queued with the rest) but I guess that goes hand in hand with the foreigner price (which I dont find wierd on the other hand).

Enjoy it, it is really cool and you will like it, just dont think you can sit down by the Taj and observe it (no sitting!) and dont write a note in your journal - because a minor hell will break loose and a cop guy will come and look through your scribbles for no reason - photo is okay though... and so is the experience of visiting this icon.

P.S. No selfie sticks allowed.

An absolute must see. Visit early in the morning: less crowded, less hot. It is a pity there was no water in the ponds.
