Taj Mahal, the symbol of love and the finest example of Mughal Architecture, would soon radiate with a new look as the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), which is protecting the monument, would complete the cleaning of the outer walls and dome of the monument shortly.
Taj Mahal was built in 17th century monument, by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal. Owing to pollution emanating from traffic, industry and burning of fossil fuels, the monument had become yellowish. After cleaning work is done, the monument will take a new look.
The ASI is using mudpack treatment to save the architectural masterpiece. The treatment involves pouring lime-splashed clay onto the building's fine Arabic etching to draw out the dust and other elements.
