I wonder if anyone could tell me at what time the Taj Mahal opens in the mornings, and at what time it closes for the evenings at the end of March?

Is it linked to the sunrise and sunset times?

Many thanks

It would be great to get there at sunrise. Would make a great photo.
Arriving in Delhi on March 7th 2007, hopefully I won't miss too many Man Utd matches on the way to the title.

I'm hoping to be there for sunrise.

The sun rises is at 6.08am on the day Im planning to be there, so I hope it opens before then.

hi abfab,
still do not know opening & closing time, but if the sun is rising at 6.08, it would be better to be at the entrance at least 30/40 minutes earlier: there could be a long queue and security checks are very strict.

Hi Abfab,
Normally so far I can remember Taj opens 6.00 hrs. in the morning and till 19.00 hrs.in the evening.On Fridays probably it is closed for half an hour at 12.00 hrs for namaz.

Thanks for the advice

I hadn't concidered the possibility of there being a queue at that time of the morning!

Sounds like it's going to be a very early start

From what I've read "TAJ MAHAL IS CLOSED FRIDAYS". Correct me if I'm wrong or delete my post but I'm pretty certain.

We were at the Taj just after sunrise on a Tuesday. We had the place almost to ourselves for over two hours.

Sunset is also nice -- and the colors may be even more beautiful -- but it was very crowded both times we visited (on Tuesday and Wednesday).
