Taj Ma - Fall?

India has its own leaning tower now that one of the four minarets surrounding the Taj has tilted 8.5 inches outward. This represents well less than a degree of inclination so it has a long way to go before it reaches leaning tower of Pisa status.

The Taj is located right on a river bank so it is not inconceivable that the foundation is not quite as solid as was thught by its builders.
