Entry fee for Charminar, Golconda hiked

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.
