    Just visited for the first time. Best advice is hire a guide! We booked an Uber from our hotel in New Delhi to Agra. It was a four and a half hour drive and I would probably take the train next time as both the Uber driver and the 4 times as expensive driver we hired through the hotel for the return trip started dozing off. I am sure they work long hours, but it made for an intense ride and we would have prefered a relaxing train ride. We spent the night in Agra so we could be at the Taj Mahal first thing in the morning when it was cool and there were less people. Our guide had a lot of great information, handled the tipping for us, kept the solicitors at bay, and knew all the best photo spots to take our picture. I was thankful that we hired a guide and would tell all my friends and family to do the same.

    Tomb of Mariam Zamani is near Tomb of Akbar the Great in Sikandra. The ticket rate is 25 Rs for Indian & 300 Rs for foreigner. If you pay cashless, you need to pay less (Rs 20 for Indian & Rs 250 for foreigner). Photography is allowed free of cost.

    Not many guides have this on their itinery so unless you know about it in advance and ask to go there then you will not be visiting this place. This is a tomb of some poet who was a minister in the court of Shah Jahan. Not on a grand scale like other palaces or tombs, this is a smallish rectangular brown building. The style is said to be the only monument based on Afghan style. Its claim to fame was supposed to be the colourful tiles in its walls and ceilings. It is mostly in ruins now.
