India’s most famous architectural monument Taj Mahal opened its doors to tourists today after a two-month hiatus.
The Archaeological Survey of India’s superintending archaeologist of Agra circle, Vasant Kumar Swarnkar, informed on Tuesday, strict COVID-protocols will be followed: “Entry will be allowed only via online tickets. No one will be allowed to enter without masks.”
A restriction of only 650 people has also been imposed by the Agra District Magistrate Prabhu N Singh.
He further noted that only five tickets could be booked via one phone number. A vaccination camp for the workers of the Taj Mahal was also set up on Tuesday, a day before the opening of the historical monument.
