Archaeological Survey of India (ASI)
Institution: Archaeological Survey of India (ASI)

The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) is an Indian government agency, under the Ministry of Culture, that is responsible for archaeological research and the conservation and preservation of cultural historical monuments in the country. The Taj Mahal is considered one of the most beautiful structural compositions in the world, so ASI, decided to photograph, 3D scan with different technologies and take videos of the mausoleum. This captured data of the unique architectural marvel is being digitally transformed into pictures, 3D models, videos and other data of the monument that now will be kept in the AWA to ensure rebuilding, research, observe changes, and ensure that the future generations have a complete access to one of the most beautiful constructions in the world.
