Hi All,

Need your assistance

Travelers - 4 Adult

Train from Jaipur to Agra Fort station reaching around 6 AM and our flight from Delhi is at 3:45 PM

Our plan is to visit Taj Mahal get a taxi and reach to Mathura quick visit to temple board taxi and reach Delhi Airport.

Can you guys let me know is it possible to do this ? or any other means of transport to reach soon so that we don't miss the flight

What would be the cost for taxi ?

You will have to report at Delhi airport around two hours before departure of the flight. Therefore you will have only seven and a half hour to complete everything.

An advance online booked ticket will be better. You will have to keep a cab ready waiting for you at Agra Cantt station. As soon as train arrives, you should rush to grab cab. At Taj Mahal you will be asked to leave your belongings in cloakroom, therefore better you leave them in cab.

Once visit is over and it will have to be over before 9 AM, you should leave for Delhi. In Mathura you should visit Janmasthan only. You should leave for Delhi by 10.30 AM latest.

If the train is late you may drop Mathura visit from the list.

You can judge from Prakaant's response whether this is practical and doable.

But I wonder whether you'd really enjoy the experience, even if you could bring it off. Everything would be hurryhurryhurry, with not a moment to savour the experience. Is it worth it?

PS: distaff reminds me that we were stuck in traffic outside Mathura for an hour and a half, first by an overloaded donkey cart which hoisted the pathetic beast into the air, second by road works. Stuff happens.

Road condition has improved and may help in easy negotiation.

When you exit the yamuna e-way and enter mathura, conditions are, as they used to be. Road to the taj has improved but the traffic is horrendous, as ever.

I would still question the purpose of such a travel - you will only see and not enjoy the sites.

I agree. But everywhere we've traveled we've seen that there are plenty of people for whom it suffices to get off the tour bus, take a snap of the monument (these days probably a selfie), and get back on the bus, content in the knowledge that they've "done" that tourist attraction.
