Hen it was being constructed , it was straight.. but the foundation ground was not that solid , so once the structure was commpleted... the sheer weight of the structure caused the ground to crack and so the Pisa leaned, once the tower tilted to an angle , the weight got balanced and the ground held it in the tilted way

It is just because of Engineering failure......the designers have taken the value of BEARING CAPACITY OF SOIL as high but actually it was low and when the construction was completed the sattlement in soil makes the Minar tilted...

Yes, it was the fault of the construction, Jab yeh banai ja rahi thi thabhi maloom huwa tha ki yeh jhuki hui hai.

Because it was constructed by Suresh kalmadi and sheela Dixit & company in their last birth in Italy, there fore in this birth to retaliate in the same manner the Lady of the Italy came down to India and RUINED THE WHOLE COUNTRY.
