According to this article, they are adding access (at a very high premium) on Fridays.

Is this operative? Has anyone done it?

Also, when the Taj Mahal is "closed" , can you still get close enough to see it? Eg if we were visiting it on a Thursday, including at night, and then wanted to see it Friday at sunrise ... even if you could not enter on that Friday, would you still be able to see the TM?

Thank you in advance for any help.

I think it was just a plan and nothing else.

If you want to see the Taj on Friday you can do it from the lawns of Taj Khema (UPTDC Hotel) or from Mehtab Bagh across the river, or any of the hotels with a roof top restaurant. I think Shanti is one near the South Gate.

Night viewing of Taj is allowed 2 days prior to full moon day, full moon day and 2 days after full moon day. Also the ticket needs to be booked a day in advance in person.
