Taj Mahal in India is one of the most visited place on the earth. It is situated in Agra India on the banks of river Yamuna, made about 350 years ago.
This iconic and majestic creation has about 5 million visitors visiting each year. Taj Mahal is known as the creation of Moughal Emperor Shah Jahan. Shah Jahan created his vision of the world, inspired by love and shaped to perfection. The Taj Mahal immortalizes one man’s love for his wife and splendor of an area. Taj Mahal is awarded as World Heritage site by UNESCO
It is now facing crucial danger caused by river Yamuna which is running almost dry a result by pollution, industrialization and deforestation. The wooden foundation of Taj Mahal is rotting and threatens to collapse within five years according to the report. The river’s fallen water level is attributed to over consumption by industries and growing population of India.
I hope India would do something to preserve Taj Mahal.
