How to get a permission to take a photo from Taj Mahal's back side? I would like to be able to get to the other side of the river and take a snap from the beach there. I asked an officer there how I can go to the beach and he told me to get a permission. He didn't speak English that well so he couldn't explain what exactly I needed.
I know that I can take photos from Mehtab Bagh and from beyond the fence there (I can only get a photo at an angle) but I need one from a place on the beach that is exactly perpendicular to Taj's back walls.
Here's what the paper says (the one on which the officer wrote down who I need permission from):
DM - DISTRICT MAJHHAL or maybe
MAJTHAL or something. If you want, I can upload a photo of the paper. :D
