India's Supreme Court has asked the Indian government to take urgent steps to protect the Taj Mahal from pollution. Insect dung is also reportedly changing the colour of its marble from a shining white to shades of brown and green. Environmental lawyer MC Mehta has petitioned the Supreme Court in the matter.
