  • Description

    India's greatest treasure, the Taj Mahal, escaped serious damage from the recent heavy flooding in Northern India. At the height of the floods, the marble monument was surrounded by more than four metres (12 feet) of water. Since then work has begun to divert the flow of the Jumna River, which runs nearby. However, the Taj Mahal faces a more serious long term threat -- industrial pollution. Fumes from surrounding industrial centres are eating into the delicate facade of the structure. Experts have warned that this trend will soon become irreversible unless some emergency action is taken. A report from Peter Monckton of the ABC.
