Centrally Protected ASI Monuments, Museums to Open From June 16

New Delhi: All the centrally protected monuments, sites and museums under the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) across the country will be opened from June 16.

The ASI protected sites were closed since April after the second wave of Covid-19 cases in the country.

Union Minister Prahlad Singh Patel tweeted, “Today the Union Tourism Ministry has given approval to duly open all the ASI monuments from June 16, 2021. Tourists can visit the monuments following necessary Covid-19 protocols. Best wishes to everyone.”

However, the opening of the monuments will be in strict compliance with the executive orders, if any, issued by the state, district or the disaster management authority. Appropriate guidelines and SOPs issued by Union and states governments, ministries and departments will be scrupulously followed.
