Agra Hotels with a View of the Taj Mahal

Agra is located on India's popular Golden Triangle circuit. The city houses the iconic Taj Mahal, one of the great wonders of the world. Built in the 17th century by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jehan for his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal, the Taj took over 22 years and 20,000 men to build. It is regarded by many as the best example of Mughal architecture and is widely recognized as a symbol of eternal love.

Several days each month, travelers can purchase a 30-minute night viewing ticket to cherish the monument by moonlight. However, instead of waiting in line with throngs of other tourists, book a room at one of the below properties and enjoy a private and uninterrupted view of the Taj Mahal all night long. (Alternately, have room service delivered for breakfast with a view!)

Here are four Agra hotels with a view of the Taj Mahal:
