Architects fear Taj Mahal is slowly sinking

Help

The Taj Mahal, built to stand as an eternal symbol of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan's love for his wife Mumtaz Mahal, could slowly be sinking according to architects.

The building's foundations require a steady stream of moisture from the Yamuna River to retain its strength - but the river is slowly drying up.
