No Taj at Night?

I posted about this a while back, but hadn’t seen that they nixed the idea. Despite reports that the Taj Mahal would
be opened at night, India’s Supreme Court, dashed tourists’ hopes by rejecting a government request to open the
monument after dark.

The court also refused to allow any cultural programmes within 1500 feet of the 17th century monument.

Apparently part of the problem is opening the Taj would require putting up floodlights, and artificial lighting
is not allowed at this World Heritage site because it could damage the monument.
