MakeMyTrip and ASI joins hands to boost bookings for heritage monuments

In a bid to promote India as a heritage tourism destination, MakeMyTrip has signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) with Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) for allowing hassle-free online booking for 116 historical monuments and sites across India. The agreement offers an online booking gateway to world heritage and well-known monuments under the protection of ASI including Taj Mahal, Red fort, Qutub Minar, Humayun’s Tomb, Khajuraho Temple, Charminar, Golconda Fort among others. This would help travel enthusiasts to plan their itinerary, with detailed information about the monument including its history and significance and other relevant details such as timings, connectivity and access, and facilities available on site. The partnership between ASI and MakeMyTrip is a collaborative effort between tourism stakeholders to effectively promote India’s rich heritage tourism. Deep Kalra, Founder & Group CEO, MakeMyTrip said, “India has so much to offer in terms of its rich cultural heritage and there is a long distance that we have to cover to showcase the best that India has to offer to the world. We are thrilled to partner with Archaeological Survey of India to help make it convenient for travellers and delight them with the ease of planning and booking their visit online to these heritage monuments. This partnership will provide world class e-ticket booking service to help travellers plan in advance and eliminate hassle of standing in long queues, saving time and effort by booking online through our platform.
