Donald Trump to visit Taj Mahal in Agra: As US President Donald Trump and his wife Melania Trump arrive at the Taj Mahal in Agra, the “monument of love” will greet them with a face-lifted avatar thanks to the mud pack and beauty treatments administered on the mausoleum by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI). PTI reported ASI authorities as saying that the schedule for the procedures was advanced, and, among other enhancements, the red sandstone corridors were cleared of weather stains, fountains were scrubbed clean, and extra flower beds were added to the gardens. The royal graves of Mughal emperor Shah Jahan and his queen Mumtaz Mahal received special ‘multani mitti’ (fuller’s earth clay) mud pack treatment, Vasant Swarnkar, Agra Circle Superintending Archaeologist of ASI, said.
