Reportedly after building a wall in ahmedabad to hide slums, india is undertaking another project before US President Donald Trump’s visit: The replicas of two graves inside the taj mahal, India’s most famous monument, are being given a clay-pack treatment. This is the first time the replicas of the graves are being cleaned since their installation more than 300 years ago.
Meanwhile the treatment involves the application of a thick layer of clay, followed by a wash with distilled water. The clay pack is originally inspired from a traditional face pack indian women apply to appear fairer. The taj mahal itself has been cleaned with a clay pack treatment five times, but the replicas of the graves were not cleaned. The real graves of Mughal emperor Shah Jahan and his wife mumtaz Mahal are in a chamber below the replicas.
Moreover trump who visited the taj mahal with his wife, daughter, and son-in-law, during his visit to india starting on monday, may not visit the actual grave because the entrance is just five feet high. The president’s security team, which visited the taj mahal recently, said that trump will not bow down, even if it is to see a 17th century grave.
