Dress code at the Taj Mahal

Are there dress codes at the Taj Mahal? I want to make sure I have what I need. Also, are the lines long or can you go right in?

    There is no dress code to visit tajmahal.

    You can dress up urself as per the weather there.

    Queues can be long at times.

    Taj Mahal is closed sometimes so before u visit check UPTourism guide for holidays .

    Yes weekends can be supercrowded so avoid it.

    There is special moon and light show on full moon nights so you can consider a night visit to Tajmahal.

    There isn't any dress code for visiting this place.

    Since its Winter, avoid weekends and public holidays since the rush would be heavy. The same would be applicable for queue's aswell. High priority ticket (mandatory for foreigner's) would let you surpass the queue.

    Entry to Taj Mahal would open by 7 am and I would highly advice to have a visit before noon you could enjoy the place at peace.

    Entry to the Taj Mahal is closed on Fridays, so be sure to plan your trip accordingly. No dress code per se, but as already mentioned here, its best to be a tad conservative in public places.

    For more information, see link below (note: the listed ticket price on this page is not supposed be in USD. This amount mentioned is in INR.)

    I don't remember any written dress codes, but I would certainly adhere to the more respectable dress code that is expected of women in India. No cleavage, no bare shoulders or shorts/skirts above the knee. You may need to remove your shoes in certain areas. There were long lines when I went.

      I know no shorts or short skirts, but do I need to cover up my arms and shoulders? I'm just thinking back to my time in Asia when I had to wear a shawl in order to enter a temple. Thanks! · (0 likelikes)

    Dear Leslie,

    There is no such dresscode for Tajmahal but there is a mosque in the tajmahal and incase if you want to visit the mosque than your head should be cover and you should avoid wearing anything above the knee. Rest all is fine.

    No specific dress code. You don't have to cover your head or anything. "Modest" apparel is best ... as it is throughout India ... except the beaches of Goa.

    There's no dress code as such in Taj Mahal. But as suggested for anyplace in India, clothes that don't expose much are always preferable. If you don't have any options you can still go in whatever you have with you

    No, there are not at all ay sort of dress code at Taj Mahal.

    Just one thing to consider that as Taj is a mausoleum and a place of worship for many, so dress modestly if possible. That way you will also avoid stares and people gawking at you.
