Under the threat turned out to be the Taj Mahal.
The Supreme court of India has given vent to emotions, since the government has not complied with any orders issued by the protection of the Taj Mahal.
The factories to stop or to demolish the monument, neither more nor less to offer the members of the Supreme court of Hdii. They said that the Taj Mahal in its current form leaves foreign tourists is very controversial, if not negative impression.
Walls of the mausoleum are lined with translucent jodhpuri marble with inlay of turquoise, agate, malachite, carnelian and other precious and semi-precious stones. By day, the marble looks white, daybreak pink, and in the light of the moon — silver. But this effect is lost due to air pollution, which is 2-3 times higher than world standards.
The marble turned yellow, and in some places became brown. If you remember that the recent storm knocked down the minarets at the entrance gate of the Taj Mahal. the monument literally sends SOS signals.
Company dumped in the nearby mausoleum of the river jamna industrial effluents. In addition, the river was low and over stagnant water bred swarms of insects that paint the walls of the Taj Mahal in green with their excrement. But the main reason for changing the color of the marble — fuming smokestacks. Nearby is a refinery.
In the spring, the Supreme court urged the government to seek the assistance of foreign organizations to stop the “alarming change in the color of walls”. Then there was no reaction.
Comparing the Taj Mahal to the Eiffel tower, the judges say that the Indian mausoleum is not an example of a beautiful metal design, reminiscent of the tower. But the main attraction of Paris in 2017 came 80 million tourists, and in Agra, where is located a mausoleum, only 10 million. India is losing currency, but the authorities do not take effective measures to save one of the wonders of the world.
