After being shut for almost six months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the iconic Taj Mahal in Agra, Uttar Pradesh, reopened its doors to tourists on September 21. Visitors will need to follow all the safety guidelines issued by the government, which include thermal screening at the entry point, maintaining social distancing and wearing a mask. Visitors will also have to book their entry tickets online well in advance. Group photos have been banned, though selfies have been allowed. Before the pandemic, the Taj Mahal attracted close to 70,000 visitors a day. However, now only 5,000 tourists will be allowed per day, that too in two shifts.
