taj mahal is turning yellow due ti the toxic fumes given out from the factories near the mahal and making the marble turn yellow
the toxic fumes are -
sulphur dioxide
methane

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

TAJ MAHAL IS GETTING YELLOW DUE TO ACID RAIN. THE RAIN DROPLETS MIX AND FALL WITH OXIDES OF SULPHER AND NITROGEN TO FORM ACID RAIN. AND THE WHITE STONE OF WHICH TAJ MAHAL IS MADE IS VERY SENSECTIVE.

Because of marble canser.

THIS phenomenon is known as marble cancer.

It is because of the increase in nitrogen dioxide and sulphur dioxide in the atmosphere this is referred as marble cancer

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.

It is turning yellow because of acid rain.Acid rain is rain or any other form of precipitation that is unusually acidic, i.e. elevated levels of hydrogen ions (low pH). It can have harmful effects on plants, aquatic animals, and infrastructure through the process of wet deposition. Acid rain is caused by emissions of compounds of ammonium, carbon, nitrogen, and sulfur which react with the water molecules in the atmosphere to produce acids. Governments have made efforts since the 1970s to reduce the production of sulfur dioxide into the Earth's atmosphere with positive results. However, it can also be caused naturally by the splitting of nitrogen compounds by the energy produced by lightning strikes, or the release of sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere by volcano eruptions."Acid rain" is a popular term referring to the deposition of wet (rain, snow, sleet, fog, cloudwater, and dew) and dry (acidifying particles and gases) acidic components. A more accurate term is ï½acid depositionï½. Distilled water, once carbon dioxide is removed, has a neutral pH of 7. Liquids with a pH less than 7 are acidic, and those with a pH greater than 7 are bases. ï½Cleanï½ or unpolluted rain has a slightly acidic pH of about 5.2, because carbon dioxide and water in the air react together to form carbonic acid, a weak acid (pH 5.6 in distilled water), but unpolluted rain also contains other chemicals. H2O (l) + CO2 (g) → H2CO3 (aq) Carbonic acid then can ionize in water forming low concentrations of hydronium and carbonate ions: 2 H2O (l) + H2CO3 (aq) CO32 (aq) + 2 H3O+ (aq) Acid deposition as an environmental issue would include additional acids to H2CO3.

the reason is acid rain which contain harmful gasesc such as sulphur and nitrogen
