Describe the threat to the beauty of the Taj Mahal.

Due to an increase in gases like sulphur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide in the atmosphere, acid rain takes place. Acid rain can occur in the form of rain, snow, fog, hail, or even dust. Acid rain corrodes the marbles of monuments. The phenomenon is also called “Marble cancer”.
Suspended particulate matter, such as soot particles emitted by the Mathura oil refinery, has contributed to the yellowing of the marble. These are threat to the beauty of the Taj Mahal.

Acids are corrosive in nature and are a strong dehydrating agent. When corrosive acids react with the skin, they hydrolyze the fats. Strong acids are harmful to the skin, eyes, and respiratory tract.

When an acid reacts with the skin, it develops redness, pain, peeling, and blistering. When the acid comes in contact with the eyes, it may cause watering, pain, open sores, and blindness.]
