Visiting During Weekends Is A Big ‘NO’!

Never ever make a plan to visit the Taj Mahal on the weekends. No matter which place you are going, it stays crowded on Saturdays and Sundays. And it is very obvious that the condition will be very same here as well. Also, the doors are closed for tourists on Fridays, so do not plan to visit on this day.
