Development Minister Nakul Dube inaugurated Taj Municipal Museum on Saturday in Paliwal Park in Uttar Pradesh. He said on the occasion, “It would now be possible for tourists to visit another spot in Agra and get acquainted with the heritage of the city”.
“This project is in response to persistent demands from cultural activists and history lovers of the city. We have digitalized the records and renovated the whole structure”, said, Municipal commissioner Vinay Shankar Pandey. He further added, “The clock tower has new clocks. A children's library is a new feature and the museum will be a big draw. In course of time, we will also have an open-air theatre here”.
Currently, one museum in Taj Mahal focuses on the Mughal history and on making of 17th century. Expressing his view, Mr. Rajiv Saxena, a senior journalist, adds, “but we needed another one in the city as it has a rich heritage and lots of artifacts and damaged statues of the period before the Mughals”. He adds, “These are now being brought to the new museum. Queen Victoria's bronze statue, presently lying in the police lines, will also be brought here”.
The whole old statues and memories of the Mughal Era will be bought in this new museum, and ultimately the tourists would be having something new other than usual attraction.
