Taj Mahal missing from UP tourism booklet

Taj Mahal missing from UP tourism booklet”

Anila Singh took objection when the news anchor asked whether the marble structure - considered one of the seven wonders of the world - was omitted because Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath recently said that it didn't represent the Indian culture.

The Yogi government has now clarified that they would include a picture of the Taj Mahal in the booklet soon. "Don't make this a controversy", Rita told ANI.

"The work we did in the last six months, there are all the records of it", Joshi said. The state tourism department has said that the Taj Mahal is not being neglected or marginalised. The booklet also includes Fatehpur Sikri.

According to Times Now report, a new booklet issued by UP Government doesn't mention Taj Mahal as one of the tourist places to visit in the state. In a booklet, titled UP Tourism: Unlimited Potential, the Taj Mahal draws a blank, while stress has been laid on promoting various religious and cultural circuits such as Ramayana circuit, Krishna circuit, Buddhist circuit, Vindhyachal circuit, Chitrakoot circuit, Awadh circuit, Jain circuit, etc.

"Foreign dignitaries visiting the country used to be gifted replicas of the Taj Mahal and other minarets which did not reflect Indian culture", Adityanath was quoted as saying by the Telegraph newspaper.

Taj Mahal, which means the Crown of the Palace, is an ivory-white mausoleum built in the memory of the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan's favourite wife Mumtaz Mahal in 1632 on the bank of Yamuna river in Agra.

"Apaar Sambhavnayen", was released on World Tourism Day. "Taj Mahal may be a attractive building.but it cannot be a symbol of our cultural heritage, " Adityanath had said earlier.
