The court said the Taj Mahal is much more lovely than the Eiffel Tower and could have solved the country's foreign exchange problem.
The court said both the federal and state government had shown "lethargy" in taking steps to tackle the monument's deteriorating condition. He said the Eiffel Tower was not considered as handsome as the Taj, yet it attracted millions of tourists.
The judges cited the Eiffel Tower as an example of good preservation, noting that the Paris landmark remained in good condition despite attracting "eight times more tourists in comparison to the Taj", says The Times of India. Taj Mahal has to be protected.

The government has closed many factories near the Taj Mahal area in the city of Agra, and the palace has been treated with packs that absorbs dirt many times over the past in a bid to save its legendary white surface. It is the biggest draw for tourists in India.
