Iconic Lotus temple monument dying slowly due to air pollution
New Delhi, April 24 (ANI): Delhi’s toxic air is hurting one of its most famous monuments. Activists said that the pollution in the city’s air is corroding the iconic Lotus temple made of pristine white marble. A petition filed with the National Green Tribunal said that heavy vehicular pollution from one of Delhi’s commercial hubs located next to the monument was hurting the structure’s white marble. The white marbled Bahai temple, which is visited by thousands of domestic as well as international tourists every day, is fighting to survive under the polluted air. The temple – which looks like a cousin of Sydney’s famous Opera House – is in shape of a lotus and was built in 1986, which has 27 free standing white marble-clad petals.
