Why the Taj mahal has no Lights?

Simple answers to these questions are just for security reasons and to save the Taj Mahal white marble from the light effect there are no lighting provisions on the edifice of the Taj. Barring a few low-level posts which were installed for security purposes, so far there is not a major lighting system.
