I heard pollution and acid rain is causing the marble to yellow, but I looks good to me. I would love to see it in person.

India is not a great place to be for any length of time.

This was the easy one. Helen I visited the Taj in November 1992 just Prior to cruising on the Original Love Boat (Pacific Princess". We sailed on her for 55 days coming back to the US.
While there we were caught up in the Countries Regilious war. The Hindos and the Buddies were fighting. We witnessed street fighting in Bombay and was delayed in boarding the ship. Was a very exciting time. We had 188 in our group and 187, ncluding me, got very ill from eating Lamb Curry in the Terminal at Bombay.

The following is a short for the Taj:

The Taj Mahal (Devanagari: ताज महल, Nastaliq: تاج م*ل) is a mausoleum located in Agra, India. The Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan commissioned it as a mausoleum for his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. Construction began in 1632 and was completed in approximately 1648. Some dispute surrounds the question of who designed the Taj Mahal; it is clear a team of designers and craftsmen were responsible for the design, with Ustad Ahmad Lahauri considered the most likely candidate as the principal designer.[1]
The Taj Mahal (sometimes called "the Taj") is generally considered the finest example of Mughal architecture, a style that combines elements of Persian, Turkish, Indian, and Islamic architectural styles. While the white domed marble mausoleum is the most familiar part of the monument, the Taj Mahal is actually an integrated complex of structures. In 1983 the Taj became a UNESCO World Heritage Site and was cited as "the jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world's heritage."[
