The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has made an important decision against the backdrop of declining cases of covid in the country. All of the country’s protected central monuments and museums will be open to tourists from June 16. The archaeological department has decided to close all monuments, memorials, historic sites and museums in the country until June 15 due to the covid epidemic. Thus, 3,693 monuments and 50 museums in the country were closed to tourists for a long time.
Finally, from June 16, all these monuments and museums will be reopened. Previously, it had been said that monuments and museums should be closed for a longer period if the number of covid cases did not decrease. But over the past few days, the number of corona patients in the country has been steadily declining. For this reason, the Archaeological Survey of India made an important decision today.
All monuments and museums across the country were closed last year after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a nationwide lockdown due to the covid pandemic. Then in July 2020, the Ministry of Culture decided to reopen monuments, museums, tourist sites and places of worship. But the government had established certain guidelines for visiting tourists and had been strictly ordered to follow them. Under the guidelines, tourists were asked to wear a mask and respect social distancing.
