Taj Mahal, Other Monuments Reopens Today

The Taj Mahal and all other centrally protected monuments, museums, and sites will reopen from Wednesday.

As per the order issued by Archaeological Survey of India, the monuments, museums, and sites were closed for nearly two months due to the devastating second wave of the Covid pandemic.

Meanwhile, Agra district administration has permitted the entry of only 650 visitors inside the premises of Taj Mahal so that Covid protocols are followed.

Superintending Archaeologist, ASI, Agra Circle, Vasant Kumar Swarnakar told PTI that the monument premises will be sanitised three times in a day.

"Masks will be mandatory for the tourists. Thermal screening of tourists would be done at gates and they would be sanitised before entering the monument premises," he added.

"The visitors will not be allowed to touch any object in the monument premises and they would have to follow social distancing norms," said Swarnakar. "Tickets will only be booked online and no ticket counter will be open," he said, while also advising tourists to bring their own water bottles and carry sanitisers.
