It is not crowded as the Taj Mahal stays open after shutting down the longest.




Few turned to the iconic Taj Mahal when the doors reopened after six months, the longest ever closed.The slotxo entrance, often with long queues, was mostly empty on Monday as staff waited for visitors.New safety measures include a ban on group photography, temperature checks at entrances and digital tickets.The monument will only allow 5,000 visitors per day as India reports daily COVID-19 cases.A 17th-century marble mausoleum built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan to commemorate Queen Mamtaz Mahal.It is one of the top tourist attractions and it attracts as many as 70,000 people every day before the outbreak.It was last shut down briefly in 1978 when Agra, home to the city, was flooded. And before that the monument was closed for a few days. 1971 during the war between India and Pakistan

Selfies are allowed. But do not take group pictures the gates opened at 8am and all staff slotxo were wearing masks and face shields, local journalist Yogesh Kumar Singh at the opening, told the BBC. India has more than 5 million reported cases and Uttar Pradesh, home of the Taj Mahal, has the fifth highest load case in the country.Officials said the temperature would be checked at the entrance and would ask visitors to use a digital payment method to purchase tickets.They are also mandated to pursue social distances regarding property.While tourists can take a selfie or take a single photo. But group photos are not allowed.


'Doesn't feel like the Taj Mahal'

But there is no rush, it doesn't feel like the Taj Mahal, Mr Singh said. I think many won't happen as long as the case continues to rise.Singh added that it will be interesting to see how safety law enforcement officials have begun to visit the site.The Taj Mahal is surrounded by gardens that tourists spend time wandering around and taking photos, but the mausoleum itself is a closed area with almost no ventilation, making it vulnerable to COVID-19 transmission.Usually there is a long line of slotxo tourists in and out.Gautam Sharma, who drove from Delhi to visit the Taj Mahal on Monday, said he had been waiting months for the day.I knew there would not be many people at first, so I thought it would be safe to visit the monument during the first few days of the reopening, he said.It is perhaps India's most famous monument and is often part of every expat's itinerary.US President Donald Trump and his wife Melania visited the Taj Mahal last month. Other world leaders who have visited the monument include Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
