Taj definetely owns it's hype. I was sceptical but once there, I was amazed by the beauty and the magnificence of the monument. We were one of the first ones to enter the premises, reached at the site around morning 5.30 or so, and had the privilege to see it uncrowded. The sunrise with the Taj in front is a spectacle, with the sun rays reflected by the structure. The garden around it has a lot of birds that constantly make beautiful noice which elevates the experience. I think everyone should visit Taj Mahal once. There is also a nice viewpoint behind Taj, on the other side of river Yamuna where we went the previous day. It is not as great as entering the Taj compounds but still almost close.
