Photography would not be permitted in Ajanta Caves, LehPalace and Mausoleum of Taj Mahal

New Delhi-The Archaeological Survey of India has decided to allow photography within the premises of all centrally protected monuments/sites (except 3). However, the 3 monuments sites in which the

photography would not be permitted are Ajanta Caves and LehPalace having paintings, and Mausoleum of Taj Mahal, Agra.The above comes in the wake of the Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi observing in his Speech at the Inaugural Event of Dharohar Bhawan in New Delhi that Space Technology in the modern era has developed to such an extent that one can photograph even minute objects from far off distances, and in this background , it is indeed ironical to restrict the tourists/visitors from taking photographs of their experiences at heritage monuments and sites.
