If you are planning to go to see main mausoleum at Taj Mahal, you will have to buy an additional ticket of Rs 200 from Monday.
Vasant Swarnakar, Archeological Survey of India’s chief archaeologists in Agra, said domestic visitors will have to pay Rs 250 and foreign guests Rs 1,300 to see the main mausoleum at the monument.
The guests from SAARC nations should pay Rs 740 rather than Rs 540.
The new ticketing system will help decrease the human load on the main structure.
Guests who purchase the Rs 50 ticket would not be permitted to enter the
main mausoleum, but rather would be able to move around the Taj and see the back side, the Yamuna river front at the back.
The Taj Mahal is viewed as one of the best example of the Mughal engineering.
In 1983, it turned into an UNESCO World Heritage Site and was referred to as
“the jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world’s heritage.”
