(FILES) In this picture taken 25 October 2006, Indian Muslim devotees offer prayers at The Taj Mahal in Agra. In spite of air pollution monitoring and curbs on nearby industrial activity India’s famed monument to love, the Taj Mahal, is still turning yellow, a parliamentary committee has found according to Indian newspaper reports 15 May 2007. In a bid to preserve the Taj, the Supreme Court a decade ago ordered the closure or relocation of thousands of smoke-spewing iron foundries, brick kilns and glass-making units near the massive tomb. The magnificent white-marbled, 17th-century Taj Mahal was built by emperor Shah Jahan as a tomb for his beloved queen, Mumtaz Mahal, who died while giving birth to their 14th child.
