:: Celebrity status, level 10 :: This is what our first experience of the Taj Mahal was like. Local people continually asking for our photo (this did not just happen at the Taj Mahal but all over India). Huge lines everywhere and so much pushing it was like a rugby scrum. We are so glad we went again in the morning when there were less people. We had a much more relaxed visit and even time to just sit and take it all in.
