The Taj Mahal Will Start Fining Visitors Who Stay Hours Longer Than Three

If you’re planning a trip to the Taj Mahal, be sure to plan your time wisely.

According to India Today, authorities at the Taj Mahal, arguably one of the most popular tourist sites in India and the world, will be charging additional fees to visitors who stay at the famous mausoleum longer than three hours.

Over the last few years, the Unesco World Heritage site has implemented a few new rules in order to fight overcrowding and injuries, as well as help preserve the delicate, ancient site from wear and tear. In 2018, authorities decided to limit the number of visitors allowed on the premises per day to 40,000. In the same year, authorities raised prices from 50 rupees to 250 rupees for Indian citizens (about 72 cents USD to around $3.60 USD) and from around $16 to $19 for international visitors (1,300 rupees if you want to visit the main mausoleum).

But there is free WiFi at the Taj Mahal, so there’s that.

In order to keep tabs on visitors coming and going to the site, there have been seven turnstile gates installed at both the east and west entry points, five of which are exit-only, according to India Today
