I don't think it can be done online... These tickets are not much in demand so you can easily get it after arriving at Agra...

A tsanemett of undying love ,

A tsanemett of undying love , Taj Mahal, Agra is undoubtedly one of the supreme accomplishments of Mughal Empire. Shah Jahan the ruler of the Mughal Empire in India.I just Love this .

Dude...they don't let you

Dude...they don't let you anywhere near the Taj at night (viewing only from entrance gate...not even the middle marble). So don't expect any awesomeness. Frankly its a waste of money. Carry a good camera for images in poor lights. Half an hour is too less a time. Recommended only for lovers. Also late night slot when the moon is directly above is preferable.

Yes Prashant...you are

Yes Prashant...you are right...tourists are not allowed beyond the last entrance gate... It only offers you a distant and hazy view of Taj Mahal... Most of the tourists reported somewhat the same inputs.... Thanks for posting your take... looking forward to see you more often...

That's a gorgeous photo -

That's a gorgeous photo - would be awesome to see the Taj Mahal in so many different lights.
