The state has entered the complete lockdown stage and will close down all historical monuments, including Hawa Mahal, Jantar Mantar, Amber Fort, and other popular spots, starting Wednesday in a bid to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) will shut all 224 protected sites across the state. It may be noted that the screening of tourists at the major tourist places had been initiated from March 5, coinciding with an Italian tourist couple testing positive for the virus, who had stayed in Jodhpur and also visited the site.

All major fairs and festivals of Rajasthan viz Rajasthan Foundation Day, Gangaur Festival and many more have been canceled by the State Tourism Department till 31st March.
Every year people from all around the world use to come to be a part of these lively celebrations, but due to the prevailing situations and to avoid large gatherings these events have been canceled.
