Tourism is down at the Taj Mahal, says the BBC:
The Taj Mahal, India's world-famous monument to love, has for years been the country's biggest tourist attraction. But in the northern city of Agra, home to the 17th century palace, tourists are now almost nowhere to be seen. ... Daily admissions of foreign tourists are usually low in July, averaging about 400-500 on week days. This year, however, that figure has fallen to 150 - less than a third of the normal level - according to a senior security official.
