They want to shoot these special moments without the crowd. It also enhances experience tourism for the public. Because these become memorable moments of their life which they never forget.
“The people who are comfortable getting the shoot done with the crowd around can do that within the official hours. A nominal amount is charged for this. For others who want privacy and maybe VIP individuals, they will be allowed a little exclusive privilege of shooting one hour before or after the opening or closing of the monument. For this charges are a bit higher,” added Mugdha Singh.
