Truth be told, photography is about scouting for locations, being patient, spending time lots of it! This is nowhere truer than at a place that boasts of being the most visited and most photographed monument in the world — THE Taj Mahal.
How can one photograph the mighty Taj Mahal in ways that pay homage to the sheer splendour of the monument? Luckily for you, we did the dirty work quite literally — there were quite a few soiled shoes at these excursions and dug up our favourite places in Agra for clicking photographs of the Taj Mahal.
The highway is in great shape and there are tons of public toilets and restaurants along the way. The Taj Mahal makes for an easy day trip from New Delhi but we would suggest staying in Agra at least for one night. This is because sunrise and sunset are the best times to photograph the Taj Mahal.
Here are five of our favourite places to photograph the Taj Mahal: The doorways and arches of these mosques provide the perfect frame for capturing the Taj Mahal. This makes for the ideal photograph of the monument. Enjoying the gorgeous view of The Taj If you are one of the first few people into the Taj Mahal when it opens at sunrise, you can get a perfectly symmetrical shot with the fountains in the front. Just remember that at any time one of the minarets of the Taj is under repair, which means scaffoldings might spoil the photograph.
We got this shot at noon: Food and camera tripods are not allowed inside the Taj Mahal. II Hathi Ghat for photographing Taj Mahal at sunrise I will preface this one with a warning — this is only for serious photography enthusiasts.
The barren river bed is distinctly underwhelming during the day but I promise you this — it is the perfect place to photograph Taj Mahal at sunrise. The first rays of the sun shine on the Taj Mahal in the distance and create magic. Legend has it that Shah Jahan thought of the gardens as the perfect place for viewing the Taj Mahal and absorbing the beauty of the mausoleum.
He was right because the gardens offer a great vantage point for absorbing the beauty of the Taj Mahal. Mehtab Bagh is great at any time of the day but we suggest visiting the gardens in the evening and sticking around for sunset.

This is an amazing piece of architecture! But at the end of the day, it's not extremely functional at least today, anyway.
