Best time of year to visit Taj Mahal and Agra

The monsoon season is not so bad in Agra comparing to the rest of India. However, the drier time of year from October through April is still the best time to visit Taj Mahal. At this time, you can see magical Agra from the birds' perspective flying over the holy city in a hot air balloon. Right after the rainy season is the best time to explore the lush gardens of Agra and the blooming jungle. Attending a yoga class facing Taj Mahal is another experience not to be missed. In late October or early November, visitors can observe light festival Diwali, while in March you can participate in colourful Holi celebrations in Agra.
