Agra Yamuna Water Level: Yamuna’s water level has broken all previous records. The flood water has reached the world famous Taj Mahal for the first time in 45 years. The flood water had also reached the walls of the Red Fort in Delhi. After this, a statement came out from the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) that a survey would be conducted to know whether there was any damage to the Red Fort due to flood water. Now similar questions are being raised regarding the Taj Mahal. Yamuna water reached the wall of Taj Mahal only in 1978 and 2010. However, this time the water level is much higher than last time.
So much water came after 1978
According to officials, the water level of the Yamuna has crossed the ‘middle flood level’ of 499 feet. The water level here reached 499.97 feet on Tuesday. Due to this, Mehtab Bagh, the famous garden located behind the Taj Mahal, was completely submerged in water. Taj Mahal’s conservation assistant Prince Vajpayee said that in the year 2010 and before that in 1978, Yamuna water had reached the walls of Taj Mahal. In the flood of 1978, water entered the basement rooms of the memorial.
He said that even this year the water has reached the Taj Mahal, but there is no danger to the monument. The main tomb is built on a high platform. This jasmine is standing on the floor. It has 42 wells in its foundation and above the wells there is a structure of sal wood. The Chameli floor is made of red sandstone and white marble, the official said.
