Travel Information

  • Arrival Guide

There is a domestic airport 12 km away from the Taj Mahal at Agra. New Delhi international airport is around 200 km north and is the most common entry point for tourists.

  • Take a Train 

Indian railways run many trains on New Delhi to Agra route. mosts are sleeper trains passing by the city some are slower as well. we recommend you to check out Gatimaan Express (12050), Bhopal Shatabdi (12002) they reach in less than 2 hours. and cost about 500-1500(depends on class). Budget travellers can take Taj Express (12280) is a best option. its 2nd class ticket for about INR100 for 2.5hrs journey.further information and book a ticket on Indian railways website

  • Taxi or Uber

It’s going to be little expensive, we advise you to not to book a random taxi at airport. ‘Uber’ works in india very well, also ‘Ola’ is another option at similar price. as per today, INR 6000-7000 return (inclusive of tolls) looks a good price if you book a private taxi from New Delhi. 

  • Local transport

Tuk-Tuks are available throughout the city. try to negotiate the price and do not overpay. At railway station, when in confusion, reach out to prepaid taxi/tuk-tuk booth.
Local traffic is not allowed within 1 km radius of the Taj Mahal. Get battery operated shuttle for INR 10/ person from parking.
