The Taj Mahal in Agra has been in the news this week for all the wrong reasons. From temporarily passing an order to restrict visitor entry into the main crypt of the Taj Mahal to proposing daily limits on Indian visitors to the monument to 40,000, there has been much news ink spilled over the fate of one of the world’s most recognised and visited tourist spot.
The UNESCO World Heritage Site, cited as “the jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world’s heritage” has now made it to Fodor’s Travel list of ‘No Visit Sites of 2018’. The reason? The facelift work commenced by the ASI to spruce up the ageing surface of the Taj Mahal.
