Scanning the Taj Mahal

The Taj Mahal is a place that I have always wanted to visit. Perhaps we’ll get the chance to virtually see it.

The Central Building Research Institute (CBRI) will start the work of 3D laser scanning of the Taj Mahal from Wednesday to gauge its structural dimensions and strength.

According to information, following some new reports that monument’s minarets were tilting, the Supreme Court in 2011 had directed the Archaeological Survey of India to get the study done find out the damage caused to the 17th century monument.
