Decolouration of Taj Mahal
Pollutants emitted by a textile factory located on the banks of river Yamuna results in acid rain and decolouration of Taj Mahal. Acid rain is caused by a chemical reaction that begins when compounds such as sulphur dioxide and nitrogen oxides are released into the air. These gases react with water vapour in the air and fall along with the rain forming Acid rain. The acid present in the rain reacts with marble and causes marble cancer which results in the yellowing and the corrosion of the marble which is a major threat to the beauty of the Taj Mahal.
