Crumbling Taj Mahal

India's most recognizable monument, the Taj Mahal, could come crashing down in two to five years if serious issues with the foundation are not addressed, according to a group of group of historians, environmentalists and politicians. The massive monument was built on a wooden foundation that is now drying out and cracking due to chronic low water levels in the nearby Yamuna river. [Daily Mail via Architizer]
