Amid coronavirus outbreak, Taj Mahal reopens for public visit
New Delhi, Sep 21: Months after being shut for tourists, one of the seven wonders of the world, Taj Mahal reopened from Monday.
It can be seen that Taj Mahal was closed on March 17 after all heritage monuments protected under the Archeological Survey of India, after discussion with the union ministry of culture, were asked to close for the visitors following the rapid outbreak of the novel coronavirus.
One of the first few visitors to step inside the Taj Mahal's premises was Debargha Sengupta, arrived in Prayagraj on September 19 for SSB exam and later took a train to Agra to visit the monument for the first time ever.
"The government locker room was closed for which I had to keep my luggage in a private shop but as I took entry and saw Taj Mahal for the first time ever I remained speechless. It is mesmeric.
