The nursing room at Taj Mahal will be inaugurated by Union Culture Minister Prahlad Singh Patel on Thursday.
"It is the first baby feeding room to open at any Indian monument," Vasant Kumar Swarnkar, Superintending Archeologist at ASI, told IANS.
"It's a 12-by-12 feet room within the Taj Mahal campus. It has a diaper-changing table, sofa sets specially designed so one can feed her baby, and there is also rubber flooring. One woman employee will be there to assist the mothers. The room will allow privacy to breastfeeding mothers and is very important," he said.
The nursing room at Taj Mahal could be the first of a series of such centres at other monuments.
An ASI official said a similar baby feeding room is getting ready at the Agra Fort, and within a month, another such centre could come up at Fatehpur Sikri monuments.
