Taj Mahal Secrets

Taj Mahal is one of the seven wonders of the World and is the pride of India. It is famous for its aesthetic and beauty. It is a symbol of love, as it is said to be constructed by the Mughal king Shah Jahan for his beloved wife Mumtaz. Supposedly, it was a tomb that was constructed for Mumtaz after her death. So many stories exist regarding Taj Mahal, which depict the dedication and hardwork of a large number of people who were involved in constructing it. But, there are many speculations regarding Taj Mahal. A few researchers and historians don’t accept the romantic love story of Mumtaz Mahal and Shah Jahan. We will now discuss some Taj Mahal Secrets that will question its historical description.

Shah Jahan was not the one who built the Taj Mahal

The secret regarding Taj Mahal that it was constructed much before Shah Jahan ruled Agra is the most terrifying one. The book named “The True Story of Taj Mahal” states that the Taj Mahal was a Shiva temple originally and it was constructed by the Rajput kings of Agra during their early reign. When Shah Jahan won a battle against the Rajputs, he conquered Taj Mahal. This is the Taj Mahal’s most challenging secret and any sort of authenticity has not been provided by any of the government bodies.
