The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has decided to allow photography within the premises of all key historical monuments and sites (except three) protected by it.
The three monuments and sites in which the photography would not be permitted are the mausoleum of the Taj Mahal in Agra, the Ajanta Caves and the Leh Palace having paintings.
The decision was taken on Thursday in the wake of a remark made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi while inaugurating the new headquarters of the ASI, an official statement said.
Modi, in his speech at the event in New Delhi on Thursday, said 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.
