Taj Mahal gives you a new experience as now you can upload selfies or photographs directly from Taj with the monument offering free Wi-Fi to all its visitors.
The free Wi-Fi facility will be for half an hour. The facility was launched by the union Minister for Communications Ravi Shankar Prasad. Anyone willing to go beyond the stipulated half an hour span would need to pay Rs.30 an hour.
This facility is being introduced by BSNL with support from a Bengaluru-based company, Quadgen.
There are future plans of introducing Wi-fi in Fathepur Sikri complex. The Agra Cantt railway station is already Wi-Fi enabled. Taj Mahal is a major tourist attraction in India which welcomed six million tourists in 2014.
This move has been appreciated by many industry leaders. However there are some who feel that in a bid to share pictures, people may lose the actual essence of enjoying this glorious monument as they did by getting immersed in its romantic appeal.
