Taj Mahal Flood

The Yamuna river has reached its highest level in 45 years, flooding the banks and reaching the walls of the Taj Mahal. The water level is currently at 497.9 feet, which is just below the “low-flood level” of 495 feet.

The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), which is responsible for the upkeep of the Taj Mahal, has said that the flood waters will not damage the monument. However, they have warned that the water may damage the gardens and other structures around the Taj Mahal.

The flooding of the Yamuna river is a common occurrence during the monsoon season. However, this year’s floods have been particularly severe due to heavy rains in the catchment area of the river.

The flooding of the Yamuna river is a major concern for the ASI, as it could damage the Taj Mahal. The ASI has been working to prevent the damage of the monument by building a flood wall around it. However, the flood wall was not able to prevent the water from reaching the walls of the Taj Mahal this time.

The ASI is currently monitoring the situation and will take necessary measures to protect the Taj Mahal from further damage.
