am a bit confused about when the main attractions close - and i really did try to find other links about this but couldn't find it - so if anyone knows what time the taj and the agra fort close that would be really useful.

i've been reading a few guide books and each one says something different -- for instance, there seems to be a light and sound show at the agra fort at 7pm, but then it also seems that the agra fort closes at 5:30pm??? and the taj closing time is different in each book/website -- if i get into agra around 4pm, could i see both the taj and agra fort without rushing the whole experience? and which order should i do it in? thanks!

Taj

Hey there, just got back from a trip there. We arrived in Agra at 8:15 am by train, checked into hotel and started our city tour at 10am..basically the fort. We went across the river and viewed the Taj from the back..great pictures and no-one else. We returned to hotel for swim/lunch etc and went to the Taj at 5pm for sunset. We left around 6:30 and it closed at 7pm. We went back the following morning at 6am..it officially opened at 6:20. Both experiences were great. The fort is huge, you would need about 90 minutes, so you could do both in one day, I think the Taj closes at sunset, so may be getting earlier as we approach Winter. If you have limited time, see the red fort in Delhi and miss the fort in Agra -built by the same people and looks similar.Hope this helps.

hi and thank you - sounds lovely - did you also see the itimad-ud-daulah and sikandra sites? what did you think of those?

i think you're right about the sunrise to sunset timing - we'll be there in december so probably sunset is around 6pm, right? and did you see the light show at the fort? was that impressive?

wow - 7am sunrise and 5:30pm sunset for early december sounds a bit unusually american... thought i remembered longer days in delhi thanks for passing on the info. will probably give up the sikandra site in favor of the taj if it gets to be after 4pm... although both sikandra and the itimad ud daulah pics look fantastic (eyewitness).
