With crowds returning to the Taj Mahal and Yamuna water getting filthier post Covid lockdown, green and black stains have once again started appearing on the marble walls of the Mughal-era monument due to another attack by the insects.

The scientific wing of Archeological Survey of India (ASI) has started cleaning the stains with normal water as they don’t want to use chemicals which could damage the intricate designs.
