The Archaeological Survey of India has decided to reopen Taj Mahal from June 16, 2021. Taj Mahal were shut down after the country was hit by the deadly second wave of novel coronavirus. Now, after two months, the Taj Mahal will be welcoming tourists.

There are about 3600 centrally protected monuments in the country. In addition, there are about 50 national galleries and museums in the country which are also centrally-protected. All of them will open their doors for visitors on June 16.

The situation of covid-19 in the country has improved and in view of this, the Archaeological Survey of India has taken this decision. According to the Archaeological Survey of India, it will be reopened following the strict orders of the state and district disaster management officials. All health and safety guidelines and SOPs issued by the authorities will be followed.

On 15 April that the ASI and the Nodal Ministry of Culture decided to close all centrally protected monuments and museums in India due to the COVID-19 second wave. Now, months later, the Taj Mahal and thousands of other monuments will reopen to tourists.

However, people will have to book their entry tickets online as the offline booking facility is currently closed, said an Archaeological Survey of India.
