Taj Hotel - Burning during the night of terror in Mumbai

Explosions inside Taj Hotel as Terrorists were cordoned out by commandos. 

The fire was put off as room by room search for the terrorists continues through the night.

This landmark of Mumbai is no less significant that what the World Trade Center towers were for NYC. 

Taj Hotel lovers must be wondering about the damage done to the monument. The old wing of the hotel is a stone structure. Other than the defacing done due to smoke, the facade should be intact. The dome woodwork will need to be redone. The inside floors and lobby would have suffered grenade damage and will need extensive rework. Let's hope that this 1903 structure recovers and starts welcoming guests soon.
