The Agra Museum (Mughal Museum), named after the Maratha warrior Chhatrapati Shivaji, will now contain the art and history of the Braj region of Uttar Pradesh. On Wednesday, Additional Chief Secretary Home and Information Abanish Awasthi said the Braj region comes under the Agra division. They will quickly start work by including the Braj region and the Agra division in the museum. Braj is also called Bridge or Bridge Land and is located in the vicinity of Mathura and Vrindavan. It is considered as the city of Lord Krishna. The region started from Mathura, Jalesar, Agra, Hatras and Aligarh. It extends to it, Mainpuri and Farukabad districts.

On 14 September, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath changed the name of the Mughal Museum in Agra to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj to show special achievements to the Mughals. The Chief Minister gave this order while reviewing the development work of Agra Division of Lucknow. According to an official statement, he stressed, “How can the Mughal be our hero”. Chhatrapati Shivaji’s name will create a sense of nationalism and self-respect.

Meanwhile, Alok Ranjan, former chief secretary of Uttar Pradesh, said on Wednesday that the concept of the project was prepared in 2015 and it would be completed between 2011-18. He said, ‘An explanatory center has been set up in Agra, containing videos, books and other materials about the Taj Mahal and other historical buildings. All the information about the local arts, culture, crafts and heritage of the country is available here in their language for the foreign nationals. In addition to Agra, there are plenty of stalls about the arts and crafts of the Braj region. Asked if Braj was involved in the initial planning, he said, “I think it was included.”

Alok Ranjan said about the purpose of building the museum, ‘The purpose was to make Agra the largest revenue center in Uttar Pradesh in terms of tourism, but the problem before us was that Agra was not getting so much revenue. Because the people of Delhi take revenue here. Tourists from Delhi tour Agra and return after booking. Tourists arrive, visit the Taj Mahal and return to Delhi. As a result, the hotel industry, restaurants, shopkeepers and artisans do not benefit.

“We get revenue only when people spend the night in Agra and there should be something for them to watch the night,” Ranjan said. How long will a tourist stay to see the Taj Mahal? Then came the idea of ​​developing the whole area around the Taj Mahal and we created an explanation center where videos, books and other materials about Agra were placed. A part of it was also built by the Mughal Museum. The idea behind it was to preserve the history, art, culture, crafts and literature of the Mughal period and make this place a center of attraction for people.
