After being closed for almost a year due to the coronavirus crisis, the Taj Mahal is set to reopen for night viewing from August 21, 2021. 

According to officials, visitors who want to explore the Taj Mahal under the moonlight can do so from today.

During the first lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, the night viewing of the memorial was closed on March 17, 2020.

ASI Superintending Archaeologist Vasant Kumar Swarnakar said night sightings will be allowed on August 21, 23 and 24 as the monument remains closed on Fridays every week, while the lockdown remains in force on Sundays.

Night View Timings

1. There are three time slots available to the visitors, namely, 8:30 to 9 am, 9:30 to 9:30 pm, and 9:30 to 10 pm.

2. The ASI said that only 50 tourists will be allowed in each slot, which is in line with the Supreme Court guidelines for munuments.

Kumar said that in respect of booking tickets for night booking, tickets can be booked a day in advance from the counter of ASI office located at 22 Mall Road in Agra.
