Number of domestic visitors to ticketed monuments India 2018

The Taj Mahal was the most visited ticketed monument by domestic visitors at about 5.7 million. Literally meaning "crown of the palaces", this UNESCO world heritage site was an exemplary of Mughal architecture, commissioned by Shah Jahan in 1631, as a mausoleum for his wife Mumtaz Mahal. In recent years, there have been causes for concern because the white-marble structure was turning yellow and green. This was due to air pollution from Agra traffic, in addition to contamination from garbage strewn into the waters of the Yamuna.
