its due to the acid rain....in which the toxic fumes of SO2 and NO2 forms H2SO4 and HNO3.and which falls down with the rain water on the taj.....and turning it into yellow colour...

taj mahal is getting yellow because of its surrounding area is congested of harmful gases whic causes acid rain. when this acid rain falls it corrodes the white marble of the monument. this is the reason it is getting yellow

New Delhi: Taj Mahal, the 17th century white marble monument of love, is turning yellow due to dust and dirt.

Due to a high level of Suspended Particulate Matter (SPM) in the air, the white marble surface of the Taj Mahal has acquired a yellowish appearance, Minister for Tourism and Culture Ambika Soni told Lok Sabha on Thursday. She said the niches, arches and the brackets used for supporting the balcony of minarets were particularly turning yellow. The main reason for the yellowish appearance seems to be dust and dirt deposits, which do not get washed off by rain.
