The nature and sources of ionic species were studied in the monsoon rainwater collected from two monuments of the sixteenth-seventeenth century CE in the Yamuna River basin from 2016 to 2018. The results showed the acidic pH of the rainwater with high dissolved SO and NO, and soil-derived components (Ca, Mg, and K). The anionic (SO, NO, Cl, F, and HCO) and cationic (Ca, Mg, K, NH, and Na) concentrations showed regional differences in yearly contribution mainly from the fossil fuel combustion, soil dust, and farm residue burning.
