If the Sunrise View of the Taj is the best sight in the world, the Moonlight View gives it a tough competition. It's not just the Sun rays that double the elegance of crystal white marble but the cool Moonlight takes the beauty of Taj to another level.
Taj Mahal Private Tour offers you a Taj Mahal Moonlight Tour in which you get the opportunity to explore the majestic beauty of Taj in Moonlight. However, you need to check the availability of the tour. The Moonlight tour is available only 5 days a month, on full-moon day, two days before it and two days after it. The tour itinerary goes as follows:
Pick up from Delhi :
Early morning, our representative will pick you up from New Delhi. We are available to pick you from your hotel or Indira Gandhi International Airport. Ride into our car and drive towards Agra. Complete the 240km distance in less than 3 hours on Yamuna Expressway. Upon arrival to Agra, check into your hotel. Enjoy a refreshing lunch and rest for a while.
Agra Fort :
In evening, we shall leave to visit Agra Fort. A massive fort built during the Mughal Empire, Agra Fort is a historical monument which is also famous for its beautiful architecture. The Fort was built by Mughal Emperor Akbar as a residence of the royal family and capital of his empire.
Located at a distance of 2.5km from Taj Mahal, Agra Fort is built in red sandstone. The craftsmanship and superb architecture of this monument invites millions of tourists every single year. Also, the fort serves as a museum housing the weapons, dresses and other belongings of the erstwhile rulers that are a big attraction for the tourists.
After visiting Agra Fort, return to your hotel. Enjoy a delicious dinner in your hotel before the next adventure.
Before the night starts, reach Taj Mahal to see the cool moonlights falling on the crystal white marble. In the moonlight, the monument changes its colour every minute, and each transforming colour is just magical. The entire atmosphere is hypnotic with couples spending their time with their loved ones, appreciating the beauty of the monument. While a day tour to Taj remains a hustle of exploring every corner of the monument, the moonlight view doesn't require anything else other than standing in front of the monument and watching the white colour transforming in hues.
This is also the time when the cool breeze becomes more soothing. The calm and composed environment is sufficient to bring the other persona out of you, allowing you to forget your worries and focus on what's in front of your eyes.
After exploring this majestic sight, return to your hotel for overnight stay. The journey resumes on next day.
Day 02 – Fatehpur Sikri and Departure:
Though it's a dedicated moonlight tour but we won't spare the Sunrise view of Taj. Early morning, check out from your hotel and reach Taj Mahal to enjoy the sunrise view. This sight is equally beautiful as what you had witnessed the night before. Spend some time here before waving a goodbye to the Taj.
Next destination in the list is Fatehpur Sikri, a historical town located 45km east from Agra. The town was established during the Mughal Dynasty as the capital of the Empire. However, the rulers had to move away after a severe draught hit the town. You can still witness the proud monuments speaking the tales of the powerful empire.
Continue driving towards Delhi and conclude your journey there. We shall drive you back to your hotel or Indira Gandhi International Airport. The Taj Mahal Moonlight Tour ends here. Thanks for being a wonderful traveller.
