Hi Srinidhi,

Environmental pollution is discolouring white marble of Taj Mahal.. Mathura refinery pose to be the biggest threat in damaging Taj Mahal.

Sulphur dioxide emission from industry have reached high levels above the prescribed level. Combined with oxygen and moisture, sulphur dioxide settles on the surface of the tomb and corrodes the marble, forming a fungus.’

The environmentalists analysed that the refinery is creating high levels of suspended particulate matter, dust and exhaust. These are causing the Taj Mahal to change colour.
