Visitors to the monuments in Hyderabad would have to shell out extra money from December 1, as the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has hiked the entry fee three-fold for both domestic and foreign visitors.
Indian citizens would have to pay Rs 15 and foreign tourists Rs. 300 for ASI-ticketed monuments that are specified under Category B (Golconda and Charminar). Earlier, these rates were Rs 5 for Indians and Rs 100 for foreign tourists. Filming at ASI monuments will now cost Rs 50,000 a day as against previous rate of Rs. 5000 a day.
