The Taj Mahal was "built by the blood and sweat of Indians", Yogi Adityanath said today, responding to a controversy over a leader of his party BJP describing the world-renowned monument as a "blot on Indian culture" and a "symbol of slavery... built by traitors".

The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, who is set to visit the Taj Mahal next week, said, "It does not matter who built it and for what reason; it was built by the blood and sweat of Indian labourers. I don't want to go into the depth of who built the Taj and why they made it."

He said the monument was important to his government, especially "from the tourism perspective" and "it is our priority to provide facilities and safety to tourists there".

The Chief Minister's Office said he would visit Agra on October 26, survey the Taj and the Agra Fort, and review various schemes.

The optics of the visit is important after BJP's riot-accused legislator Sangeet Som's comments disparaging the 17th-century marble mausoleum built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan. "What history are we talking about? The man who built Taj Mahal imprisoned his father. He wanted to massacre Hindus. If this is history, then it is very unfortunate and we will change this history, I guarantee you," Mr Som told a public meeting in Meerut on Sunday.
