Taj Mahal reopen on 21 September

The Taj Mahal reopened on 21 September to public after 6 months with a cap of 5,000 daily visitors. This magnificent and beautifull monument to love had been closed in the wake of the pandemic. 

 

Other Archaeological Survey India protected monuments in Agra were allowed to open from September 1 though Taj Mahal and Agra Fort remained shut as they are located close to containment zones.

 

When the Taj opened visitors had to follow all health guidelines such as social distancing and hand sanitization. Masks are mandatory to enter the monuments and all tickets must be purchased online. There will be no in person ticket counters open.

 

On an average the Taj Mahal receives 70 to 80 million visitors per year. As regular international traffic has not resumed to India a large number of foreign tourists are not likely to visit at this time. The second most popular site the Agra Fort gets 30 million visitors a year.

 

While the Taj Mahal will remain closed on Fridays and Sundays, Agra Fort will remain shut on Sundays.
