The Taj Mahal at Agra will be closed to the general public on Jan 27th due to the visit by United States President Mr Barack Obama.

This is per news sources.

Better steer clear of travel that whole day. Although he's going to be flying Delhi-Agra, they'll be shutting down the Expressway "just in case."

Never a dull moment in the still emerging obama-nama. The US prez is believed to have canceled his Agra visit - apparently he needs to go to Saudi Arabia? This should come as a relief to the ordinary citizens of Agra as they were about to lose mobile phone service for 3 hours on the visit day, though a huge disappointment to those shop owners who painted their shopfronts afresh!

NDTV is running news of cancellation of Agra program due to death of Saudi King.

The US Security team has returned back from Agra.

Delhi pretty much shut down yesterday as Obama shuttled from airport to hotel to VIP areas to Gandhi's memorial and back. Good thing most people anticipated that and didn't venture out in huge numbers as they do every Sunday. Even Connaught Place was mostly closed.

It was good to hear that the dogs, beggars, and dirt have been cleaned up on the relevant route. That will make up for the incredulity greeting Obama's call for India to cut down its industry (carbon). What is the saying about guests that leave quickly.?

Isn't His Nibs going to Saudi Arabia that day? (I would, if I were he. But then I'm a contrarian on the Taj.)

If I was Modi, I would present the Taj to Obama, lock stock and barrel...take it and place it next to your white house or wherever.
If you find my posts confrontationist, please bear, I am an old frustrated guy who has nothing better to do than sit on rocking chair and curse the world whole day

The people of Agra would love that suggestion. It would certainly be a big boost to industry.
