Taj Mahal is one of the most remarkable architectural works of all times. It is situated in Agra, Uttar Pradesh in India. We all know it as a symbol of love that was constructed by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in the memory of his queen Mumtaj.

Since Taj Mahal is one of the most important assets of our country, several measures have been taken in the past to protect the great monument. In 1942, the government of India placed a scaffolding in anticipation of an air attack by German Luftwaffe and later by Japanese Air Force, to mislead bomber pilots. Same was implemented again in Indo-Pak wars of 1965 & 1971.

Here are some rare pics from World War II and Indo-Pak wars that carry the moments about those a few of us know:
