According to a news from "Times of India" - The Taj Mahal will need nine years of mud packs to remove yellow stains from its white marble walls caused by air pollution.
Archaeologists said the lengthy period was needed to properly and safely clean particles from the four minarets and the main dome of the famed monument to love.
The treatment is hoped to restore the natural sheen and color of the white marble monument.
It will be the fourth time the 17th century mausoleum has had the treatment. The last mud-pack was applied in 2008, but pollution levels around the monument remain high and officials say it needs cleaning again.The Taj Mahal sits on the bank of the Yamuna River, at the city of Agra in India's northern state of Uttar Pradesh.
