The jewels of the Taj will shine in the moonlit night, the desire for a night view will be fulfilled only for five, not four nights, this is the reason
The beautiful Taj Mahal's jewels shine in the moonlit night. This time on Sharad Purnima, tourists will be able to see the Taj Mahal in the moonlit night only for four nights. The memorial will remain closed due to the first day of Taj Ratri Darshan falling on Friday. Tourists wait throughout the year to see Chamki at the Taj Mahal on Sharad Purnima. Due to the limited number of tourists, not everyone's wish is fulfilled.
Lives like a fair in the Taj Mahal
Before the year 1984, there used to be a fair-like view of the Taj Mahal on Sharad Purnima. After this, Taj Ratri Darshan remained closed for 20 years due to security reasons. In November 2004, on the orders of the Supreme Court, Taj Ratri Darshan was resumed, but many restrictions were imposed. In the past, when the number of tourists and the timing of the opening and closing of the Taj Mahal was not fixed, all this was decided after the order of the Supreme Court.
Now five days a month (Purnima, two days before the full moon, and two days after) Taj Ratri Darshan takes place. This time Sharad Purnima is on the 9th of October (Sunday). From 7 to 11 October, the Taj Ratri Darshan should have been done, but on 7 October it is Friday, due to which the Taj Mahal will open at night for four days only.
