Taj Mahal once again came into news as a huge copper and bronze chandelier in it, which is gifted by British Viceroy Lord Curzon in 1909, fell on the ground and was damaged.
The six-foot high and four-foot wide chandelier was a gift from Curzon. It was installed at the royal gate of Taj Mahal.
It is believed that when Curzon visited Agra and Fatehpur Sikri in 1905, he ordered the installation of this chandelier. He also got a Dak Bangla built at Fatehpur Sikri Fort during that time.
“After every other Viceroy has been forgotten, Curzon will be remembered because he restored all that was beautiful in India.”
