Once Janaka gave me the B’ day Card with a picture of Taj Mahal…

It’s so attractive..Then I was searching the history of it …get to know abt the great love story behind the white Marble memorial…

It’s really made me so closer to him…more than ever…

So .this is the story behind this grand monument.



In 1612, a teenage girl, Arjumand Banu, married 15-year-old Shah Jahan, ruler of the Mughal Empire. Renamed Mumtaz Mahal, she bore Shah Jahan 14 children and became his favorite wife. After Mumtaz died in 1629, the grieving emperor resolved to create a fitting monument.

It took 20,000 workers and 1,000 elephants nearly 20 years to complete this monument—the Taj Mahal.

Built of white marble, the Taj sits on a sandstone platform. A 137-foot high dome tops the mausoleum. The interior is lavishly decorated in lapis lazuli, turquoise, agate, jasper, and colored marble. The exterior is paved with semiprecious stones that sparkle in the sun. The surrounding garden contains four water channels representing the four rivers of Islamic paradise.

Shah Jahan was never able to complete a black marble mausoleum he planned for himself. Deposed by his son, Shah Jahan was imprisoned in the Red Fort of Agra, and spent lonely hours staring across the Jamuna River at the monument to his beloved queen. He was eventually buried beside her in the Taj Mahal.





As Water is to a flower, and honey is to a bee,
You are always there, You are a part of me.

As the wind blows, Through the distant land,
My love for you grows, Never wanting to end.

As the stars are to the night, And the grass is to the ground,
You must definitely know, My love is all around.

And when there is no wind, No land, night or sun,
I will love you forever and always, Even when my life here is done.

And when my days are over, My life here on earth is through,
I hope you will forever know, I will still be in love with you.

Taj Mahal is a beautiful creation inspired by love, but it ruined the empire of it’s wealth and many workers perished building it. So it has its ugly side as well. Your poem is very inspiring Priyanga, but you too will realize the reality of life one day. So enjoy the romance while it lasts.

To Taj Mahal Lovers,

Prof. P.N.Oak challenges that Taj Mahal is not a Muslim monument,,it is an ancient temple of lord Shiva( a Hindu God) and,, was not built during the Mughal period but well before that.

I totally agreed to ADMINX. That is the true storey about Taj Mahal as I have read in my younger days.

“Eya  pasu thewille Lakunak ma thama”  selfish  “Shah Jahan ge”

But no doubt Taj Mahal is a very nice creation

I suppose,
“If you love some one you have to show & act while you are alive.”

Like how Priyanga tells us....
