To stop the discoloration of the Taj Mahal mausoleum, he should ask foreign aid to the Indian government – said the Supreme Court of India.
According to the court’s decision, the Indian government and Uttar Pradesh government should call on world-famous experts in India to help preserve the country’s most famous sights as the air pollution, insects and building age have severely damaged the walls of the building.
“It has become yellow and now it is brown and green,” the competent judges reasoned their decision, who considered the submission of local environmentalists.
“The situation is very serious, it seems (governments) have been left out of the way, it must be saved (the monument), and experts from abroad should be called to assess damage and recover,” the judges said.
Since the 1980s, the judiciary has been regularly reviewing matters relating to harm to the state of Tádz Mahal.
They will try to fight the damaging effects of air pollution with the utmost care, but they are all powerless until sources of pollution are counted, “the Daily Telegraph’s British Daily quoted the Indian archeological supervisor.
Cleaning of the Mausoleum’s walls and minarets began in 2015. The experts used natural clay paste to remove yellow discoloration and restore the marvelous whiteness of marble.
In the past it was enough to have the rain washed away by the Taj Mahal, but in the last 25 years air pollution has caused serious damage. Everywhere the building became apparently yellow. In fact, places that were not covered by the rain were straightforward, “said Buvan Vikrama, the archeological authority of India who supervised the renovation.
Vikrama said the dome will probably be cleaned for 10 months, and will be completed in 2019. The renovation will cost half a million dollars.
The Taj Mahal Sahah of Saudi had built mogul sah between 1632 and 1647 on the banks of the Jamuna River for his memorial of Mathias Mahal. A monument to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites is visited by seven to eight million tourists each year.
The Indian Supreme Court last year instructed the government of Uttar Pradesh to “develop a pragmatic, futuristic” policy to protect the Taj Mahal and its environment, saying the odd building would have to be protected not only for the next 25-50 years, but for at least 400-500 years.
