This is a mind-blowing place, At night it looks so shiny i loved it, Admiring place, It's so detailed, The dome looks amazing and at day it looks amazing, Only one complain, In Jumaa Raat (Friday) Its so crowded, Men is very crowded that my dad carries me on his shoulders, But the crowd in girls, I can't describe it, I liked this place actually
It's nice place and full of people from all around the world, I visited on February 12, 2022, at the day time had a warm sunlight and in the night was almost cold. You should take off your shoes and put your backpack and camera outside of the shrines, but taking photos and walking with shoes on the way between the holy shrines are free and also some photographers are there to take photos of you and family. I think it's ok for kids when it's not so overcrowded.
