Archaeological Department employee cleaning the dome of the eastern gate
Everyone is convinced of the beauty of the Taj Mahal, the seventh wonder of the world. Whoever sees the white milky building. One starts reading tales of its beauty, but the credit for maintaining the beauty of Taj Mahal goes to the Archaeological Department. Every day the employees of the department do one thing or the other to keep the building beautiful. For this they also have to take risks. The thrilling video of cleaning the domes of the Taj Mahal has been captured on camera on Monday.
All the domes are cleaned from time to time
Birds sit on the domes of the Taj Mahal and sometimes due to strong wind and dust, there are spots. Even though it is not visible from a distance, the employees of the Archaeological Department clean the domes by holding the rope. This sight of cleanliness is very exciting to see, but even after taking precautions, there is a lot of danger in it.
It takes ‘mud pack’ to get fair
To keep the Taj Mahal white, a special ‘mud pack’ is applied before the rainy season. When this pack washes off in the rain, the Taj Mahal becomes more milky. Along with this, special care is taken to clean it from time to time.

Superintendent of Archeology Rajkumar Patel says that the repair work on all the protected monuments is being done continuously by the department. At places like Taj Mahal, Fort, Fatehpur Sikri, Sikandra etc., some or the other work is done almost daily. The stones of white designing done on red stone keep falling and they are also repaired from time to time. If any problem is noticed anywhere, it is repaired immediately. This is necessary to maintain the original historical character of the monuments.
Work is done by trained employees
According to Patel, even if we have to change the floor stone somewhere, we change it intermittently so that the tourists do not see the new work there. This is the reason that people can see it after a long time even after continuous repair work is going on.
