Earlier this month, Akhilesh Yadav, Chief Minister of the state Uttar Pradesh, laid the foundation stone for the Mughal Museum in Agra near the eastern gate of Taj Mahal. The project is part of a larger masterplan led by Archohm for the area around Taj Mahal, which also comprises the Taj Orientation Centre and the Taj Ganj Visitors' Centre.

The museum will accommodate 5,200 m² permanent and temporary exhibition space and is dedicated to the history and culture of the Mughals, a dynasty that ruled over Northern India for over three centuries. The construction is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year.
