India’s top tourist attraction, the Taj Mahal, is set to reopen more than six months after it was shut, officials said on Tuesday (September 8), even as the vast nation battles soaring coronavirus infections.

India, home to 1.3 billion people, on Monday overtook Brazil to become the world’s second most-infected nation with more than 4.2 million cases, behind only the United States.

According to Northern Uttar Pradesh state’s Tourism Department, deputy director Amit Srivastava said the Taj Mahal would reopen on September 21.

He said all COVID-129 protocols like physical distancing and the wearing of the mask would be followed.

Visitors will be limited to 5,000 a day, down from the usual daily average of 20,000.

One of the New Seven Wonders of the World, the shining marble mausoleum south of the capital New Delhi has been closed since mid-March as part of India’s strict virus lockdown.
