Now, to get to the legendary Taj Mahal mausoleum-mosque, after such a long break, you need to buy a ticket online in advance and measure the temperature at the entrance. Inside, all visitors should wear a medical mask and keep a social distance. Even group selfies are now banned. You can only take pictures one by one. In addition, the museum complex in Agra can now be visited by over 5000 people a day. Every day, after the museum is closed, its territory is carefully disinfected.
The Taj Mahal has been open for a week, and while journalists and visitors note that there are no crowds of tourists traditional for this monument of history. Most likely, this is due to the fact that the total number of diagnosed cases of COVID-19 in India has now reached 5.5 million. In the last 24 hours alone, the number of patients was more than 74 thousand people.
