To mark the 75 years of India’s independence, the Centre has decided to light up the historic buildings of the country with tricolor lights on August 15, Independence Day 2022.
150 monuments in total would be lit in a tricolor theme as part of the celebrations. Some of the monuments have already been illuminated.
However, this rule will not apply in the case of the Taj Mahal due to a special directive of the Supreme Court which says no lighting can be done on monuments at night.
