Taj Mahal hotel reopens two years after Mumbai militant attack
Taj Mahal Palace, one of the three luxury hotels in Mumbai, which were attacked by Islamic militants in 2008, reopened on Sunday after repairs, a hotel spokesman said.
A total of 1.75 billion rupees (about $38 million) was spent on repairing extensive damage done to the hotel that had been founded in 1903. The repairs were financed by an insurance company, Indian Hotels Company, the hotel's owner said.
As many as 20 consultants from India, Great Britain, Italy, Singapore and the United States supervised the work to restore every piece of antique furniture at the hotel, RIA Novosti reported.
On Saturday, the luxury Oberi hotel in Mumbai, also targeted by the gunmen in 2008, reopened its doors to guests.
At least 166 people were killed during 10 coordinated attacks throughout south India's financial capital in November 2008.
