Agra : A visiting Chinese delegation expressed satisfaction over the conservation of historical monuments in Agra including the famous Taj Mahal, Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) sources said.
Chinese minister for forests and environment Lee Yu Chai, who led the delegation, also suggested that in the interest of the monuments' good health the number of visitors should be controlled.
Members of the delegation felt the increasing number of tourists at the historic Taj Mahal could create a problem in the future.
The delegates interacted with the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) officials here and evinced keen interest in the details of conservational efforts, as they were impressed with the manner the Taj Mahal was being looked after.
The delegates said they would apply some of the knowledge gained here in China, an ASI source said here Saturday.
The delegation was in Agra for two days to pay visit to the Bear Rescue park, Fatehpur Sikri and some other monuments apart from the Taj Mahal.
