"Great place, nice architecture, but no trampolines. Seriously, a palace with no trampolins??? Also a great place to bury a body. In my native language, Taj Mâhhàl translates roughly to "Trampoolie Body Burial". Very misleading title."

"Well have recently visited TAj and that's when we got to know about this place which was the inspiration behind Taj or can say was the blueprint of Taj. A beautiful monument that is so clean and houses a museum to boast of the rich mughal history. Well maintained lawns which are lush green makes it an ultimate destination for a visit with the kids. If you want to enjoy this place try to visit it in the early hours or you may also join the Humayun tomb walks that happen early morning everyday at 7"
