place i love most…….

Posted on: September 27, 2008

The plaque put the archealogy department outside the Tajmahal describes the edifice as a mausoleum built by Shahjahan for his wife Mumtaz Mahal , over 22 years from 1631 to 1653. The story of the Taj Mahal that most of us have known about may not be the real truth. We have all heard how the Taj Mahal, which is considered one of the great wonders of the world, was built as the preeminent expression of a man’s love for a wife. That it was built by emperor Shah Jahan in commemoration of his wife Mumtaz. However, in our continuous effort to get to the truth, we have recently acquired some very important documents and information. There is evidence that the Taj Mahal was never built by Shah Jahan. Some say the Taj Mahal pre-dates Shah Jahan by several centuries and was originally built as a Hindu or Vedic temple/palace complex. Shah Jahan merely acquired it from its previous owner, the Hindu King Jai Singh. 

            But whatever history says I still believe that Taj mahal is a expression of a deep love…that’s how we value the person we love so much in a unique way and make world known a lover can do anything….so that’s why I choose Taj mahal as my dreams place that I should see….so long live love…..
