The monuments of Fatehpur Sikri after the main dome of the Taj Mahal, the jasmine floor and the Diwan-i-Khas in the Agra Fort, the Musamman Burj, turned away from tourists. Tourists will not be able to touch their walls and pillars with their hands. Between the walls of tourists and monuments, pillars of palaces, a space of three to four feet was made so that no one could touch them. This protects the mosaic stones of the monuments and also prevents corona infection.

ASI installed wooden railings
The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has placed wooden railings in front of the walls of the monuments in Fatehpur Sikri so that no tourist would touch them. Tourists not only touched the exquisitely carved pillars of Diwan-e-Khas built in the Panchmahal complex, but also had their picture taken.

ASI installed wooden railings on all sides. Anoop Talab, Turkey’s Sultana Mahal and Diwan-i-Khas were also included in this complex. The ASI spent Rs 16 lakh on it.Senior archaeologist Vasant Kumar Swarnakar said many tourists come scratching and damaging them, whether it is Musamman Burj or other monuments. This railing keeps him away from the wall. Tourists must see the monument. This will not affect him. Other people will also be able to avoid infection by not touching them.

Diwan-e-Khas will be able to see through the mirror
A wooden railing was installed on a stone plinth around the column in Diwan-e-Khas in Fatehpur Sikri. Tourists keep touching it. This is where ASI will place glass so that tourists can see it but not touch it.

In the past there was a plan to install a similar jar in the main tomb at the Taj Mahal modeled on the Percy Police Tomb, but had to be stopped due to opposition from leaders.
