Replace ‘with’ with ‘by’

With denotes the instrument or thing with which something is done. By denotes that agent or doer.

The correct sentence should be: She was taken by surprise when she saw the famous Taj Mahal.

Example: Ravana was killed by Ram with an arrow.

He beat the dog with a stick.

He shall reach here by four o’clock.

‘By’ is also used in future tense to express time up to the last stage.
