History Of Taj Mahal
Southside of Yamuna river, middle of 42 acres Horticultural garden, 240 feet height Ivory white marble most beautiful construction is our Taj Mahal. It is one of the 7 wonders of the world present in Agra, India. Every year approximately 1crore people visit the Taj Mahal from all the parts of the world. Let us know what our history says about the Taj Mahal, Shah Jahan could not digest the death of his lovely wife Mumtaz (who has another name called Arjumand Banu Begum) to show his love for her he decided to build the most beautiful Tomb in memory of her. He prepared the plan and called Taj mahal’s chief architect Ustad Ahmad Lahauri in 1632 he started working from then. He bought all the materials from different parts of Asia, white marble stones are from Rajasthan and other materials are from China, Tibet, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, and some Arabian countries. A total of 20,000 people and 1,000 Elephants worked for about 10 years they completed building the Taj Mahal in 1643 and after that building surrounded gardens, Horticulture, and all other works took 10 more years to complete i.e. 1653.
After Mumtaz’s death in 1631, they built a temporary tomb for her and stored her body after the Taj Mahal is built they changed her body. At that time of building the Taj Mahal, for the people who are working they built a new called Mumtazabad. If we want to build the Taj Mahal in the present situation It will cost us around 600 crores, so the Taj Mahal is not only the most beautiful but also the Costliest creation. Taj Mahal is being protected for many years during the 1942 war with Japan and the 1963, 1971 wars with Pakistan they covered Taj mahal with blankets to hide against war helicopters. The government has taken safety measures by not allowing any factories nearby the Taj Mahal. Another mystery of taj mahal Exactly opposite to Taj Mahal, Shah Jahan has a plan to construct Shah Jahan’s tomb with black marble stones just like Taj Mahal That was Called as Black Taj Mahal But unluckily that plan didn’t go well because of his son Aurangzeb king of that period thought it was waste of expenditure.
Rumours About Taj Mahal
- Some people tell that the Taj Mahal is not the tomb of Mumtaz but it’s Lord shiva’s temple Tejomahalaya built by Rajputs in 1152. Also, some people tell that no one keeps word mahal to any tombs and shiva’s temple has redesigned as the Taj Mahal.
- Some people Assume that Below the Taj Mahal, there are underground passages where we can find Lord shiva Linga’s and other photos of Hindu gods. To prove this Indian Government has appointed an archaeological Committee But It has proved wrong by the committee.
- All the Lord Shiva temples are nearer to some rivers but Muslim tomb won’t be at any river. complete construction of Taj Mahal has 20,000 workers for about 20 years worked very hard and the construction need much water so they have constructed Taj Mahal Near to Yamuna river,
- Some argue that Jai Singh of Rajput’s king built Tejomahalya but Rajputs won’t worship Lord Shiva Much They worship Lord Rama and Lord Krishna. If he really wants to create he can create a temple for Lord Rama or Lord Krishna. so this is not at all true.
There are many rumors around the Taj Mahal but none of them proved to be true all of them are the wrong claims so it’s not necessary to go in-depth. Purushottam Nagesh Oak (also called P N Oak)is the man behind all these false rumors, he wrote a book called Taj mahal The True Story in 1989 all these Mysteries of taj mahal wrong claims are in that book but none of them is correct.
