    anyone heard rumors that the Taj Mahal may collapse after 400 years standing up? Apparently, the Taj Mahal's foundations are rotting so it could collapse anytime..I'm wondering if this is actually true because I never heard the Indian government saying this. any ideas?

    I read about this in the Smithsonian. Sadly, it's not that far off. Between its age, the water damage, and all of the tourists, this world treasure isn't in the best shape. I don't think it's going to crumble into dust anytime soon, but it does need some expensive repair work. It's sad to hear that the Taj Mahal needs some work.

    This is worrisome, one of the finest buildings, ever in human history, could actually be no more.

    They have had such rumours about every wonder of the world, rather every architectural marvel. Whilst the rotting up of its foundations can be a fact, but 'collapsing after 400 years since its made' is just a legend
