Scaffolding covering the top of Notre Dame Cathedral erected after a devastating fire in April 2019 has been removed, marking a milestone in the reconstruction of the UNESCO-listed building.

The new tower of the Paris Cathedral is decorated with a golden rooster and a cross. As a symbol of resilience and renewal, the new golden rooster conceived as a phoenix with burning feathers, it was placed on top of the tower in December 2023 and marked the cathedral's rising from the ashes.

Much of the world-famous landmark is still surrounded by scaffolding, the removal of which could take weeks, perhaps months. The cathedral will not be open to the public during Olympic Games in Paris in July when the city will host millions of visitors and Olympians, reports The Herald.
