Favorite thing: Despite what the guidebooks may say, since the gates to the Taj Mahal open from dawn to dusk, the times are not fixed. Our LP book said that the south gate would be open at 6am, but in Feb 2009, the east and west gates opened at 7am (with ticket office open at 6:30) and the south gate opened at 8am. It's always best to check locally rather than trusting the guidebooks implicitly (it would have saved us a 5:30am alarm!).
That said, if you want to be there for dawn, bear in mind that tour groups start queuing early. Very early.
