Tarry at the Taj at a cost

This item appears on page 4 of the August 2019 issue.

At the Taj Mahal in Agra, India, a new pricing structure with a time limit was introduced on June 23. Entry to the grounds now costs INR1,000 (near $14.40) for three hours, with entry to the mausoleum costing an additional INR200. Anyone staying even one minute beyond the allotted three hours will be charged INR1,000 for another three hours, with the same condition then applying again upon exiting.

(For example, a person spending six hours and one minute on the grounds will be charged an additional INR2,000 when exiting.)
