Taj Mahal: Cleanliness Drive At The 17th Century Monument

The pristine beauty of Taj Mahal makes it one of the most visited tourist places in the country with over 80,000 people flocking to witness the 17th century monument. Unfortunately, the dirt and rubbish accumulated on the streets outside this site blemishes the experience of local and international tourists as the monument, despite constant efforts, fails to achieve international sanitation standards. The NDTV-Dettol Banega Swachh India Cleanathon held clean-up drives at this iconic location on Rashtriya Swachhta Diwas.
