Hi,

we are planning to visit agra places like taj mahal, agra fort, fathepur etc.

1 ) we would like to know how weather going to be?
2 ) how can be the crowd of visitors at taj and other places. ( Actually we want to see the places when less people there ).
3) Taj night view tickets counter open at 10 am one day before the full moon day. But anybody have an idea that from what time start forming line for tickets. (how early we should stand in line for getting tickets without fail)

If you wish to see Taj alone or with lesser crowd, you should see it in photographs or on TV.

The places will be chillier. You should be visiting Taj at dawn, when there will be lesser crowd.

The night viewing tickets of Taj Mahal can be purchased from the Booking Counter located in the office of Archaeological Survey of India, Agra Circle, 22 The Mall, Agra, Uttar Pradesh in between 10-00 am to 6-00 p.m. one day in advance of the date of night viewing.

The night viewing ticket can be cancelled in the Booking counter of ASI at 22 The Mall, Agra on the same date of viewing upto 1.00 p.m.with cancellation charge of 25% of the ticket.

Ya since it is winter, it is going to be chilling time but if full of fog takes place, we may not be able to see and enjoy the monument.

Ya you are right but i just want to know that what time the que starts forming before 10 am so that we can buy tickets with out fail as there are only 400 visitors allowed in including all slots for the day of full moon. any idea pl share.

regards,

Weather can't be predicted so advance. So, you should wait till the D-day and check the weather reports.

You should try purchasing tickets between 9 and 10 AM to avoid disappointment.

So lesser crowd if full of fog which is what you want. If there is no fog then the complex will be crowded which you don't want.

Now you decide what is important. Less crowd or see and enjoy the monument.
