Taj Mahal: Delhi Installs Air Purifiers & Masks For Tourists

Delhi is currently facing the worst pollution ever in the history and the government banned nearly 50 % of the private cars from its roads on Monday. More than 20 million people spluttered with stinging eyes and Delhi had to act in an emergency in various forms.

The latest viral pictures show that even Taj Mahal has tourists wearing pollution masks and being one of the eight wonders of the world, the pictures are truly heartbreaking. The Agra District Administration has installed two air purifier machines at the gates of the Mughal era monument Taj Mahal to combat air pollution in the surroundings. In other words, with high levels of smog, authorities parked vans with an air purifier near the iconic Taj Mahal.

Keeping in mind the increased respiratory cases in the hospital, the air purifiers are arranged to clean the air in its surrounds. Not only this, the diversion of 37 flights on Sunday came as an unprecedented move. 'There is smoke everywhere and people, including youngsters, kids, elderly are finding it difficult to breathe,' Delhi's chief minister Arvind Kejriwal said in a Twitter video. 'Eyes are burning. Pollution is that bad' he added. The most polluted city now also have schools closed until Wednesday and the city government is giving free pollution masks to children.
