This is a photo of the past year. Every year from 18 to 27 February, Taj Mahal was held at Shilpgram near Taj Mahal East Gate of Agra.
- The Taj Mahotsav was started in the year 1992, since then it was held for 10 days in the month of February.
The Corona crisis has once again frustrated the people of Agra. Every year, the Taj Mahotsav, to be held here for 10 days from 18 to 27 February, will not be held this time. The first time in 30 years that the Taj Festival will not be celebrated. Apart from Indians, many foreign tourists also used to attend this event. While people had the opportunity to cherish pleasant memories with the family amidst the beauty of the Taj Mahal, the merchants also used to make a lot of profit.
Taj Mahotsav was started in 1992
The Taj Mahotsav was started in the year 1992. It is recognized as a national festival. The Taj Mahotsav recognizes 350 artisans in the country every year and also gives a local stage to countless local artists. The genres of the whole country were overwhelmed by presenting their art on the Muktakashiya stage of the Taj Mahotsav. But in view of the atmosphere in the Kovid-19 era, the Taj Mahotsav is being canceled this time.
