Agra: The Taj Mahal will be thrown open for public on Fridays, but the visitors will have to shell out a hefty Rs 5,000 for a special ticket, which will cost 100 USD for a foreign tourist.

This was decided at a meeting chaired by Divisional Commissioner of Agra Pradeep Bhatnagar.

Visitors will be allowed in the world-famous monument of love from 7 am to 12 noon on Fridays, Bhatnagar said, adding the decision will be implemented soon.

Earlier, the 17th century Wonder of the World used to remain closed for public on Fridays.
