TajMahal – A Hindu Temple??

One may think that I am kidding,but it is very interesting piece of information worth knowing.We all know and studied in the History books that Tajmahal was bulit by Shajahan in the memory of his wife Mumtaz.The construction of the Tajmahal started one year after the death of Mumataz. It is the year 1633.The construction of Taj Mahal had begun soon after Mumtaz’s death with the principal mausoleum completed in 1648. The surrounding buildings and garden were finished five years later. I have given the excerpts from different sources on the Tajmahal and it’s history.

The Controversy Surrounding the Origins of the Taj Mahal

People have argued that Oak’s theory has no credibility whatsoever. Some might even argue that we should not go by rational, logical, intelligent way of analysis of this issue and they believe facts rathen than scientific way of analysis.Here is an interesting piece of an argument.

However Stephen Knapp has some interesting facts and information and findings on Tajmahal.

Recently in 2005, the Shia community and Uttar Pradesh Sunni Waqf Board started claiming the ownership of Tajmahal. The reason behind this move by these Muslim boards is nothing but to gain monetary benefits.This was even supported by UP minister Azam Khan of Samajwadi party.Azam Khan is well known for his claims for separate Muslim Pradesh.He even called Sachar committee report as eye wash and went on to say that Sachar Committee recommendations were not enough.Is he thinking, India is a Islamic country?

Some more articles on Tajmahal:

Tajmahal and the Great British Conspiracy!

Marvin H. Mills, an Architect and Architectural historian from Newyork has done extensive research on Islamic art and Architecture says Tajmahal was indeed a Shiva temple. See the video.


  1. Taj Mahal is not a Hindu temple but a place of worship for muslims.

  2. @Anuj:-
    Are you blind to the evidence presented here?
    Which of the evidences presented here do you disagree with?
    Are you open minded enough to go through the links in this article or want to continue the rut taught by un-educated historicians?

    often history is manipulated by the rulers who use it to their benefit. Mughal invaders changed the name-stones on the monuments to get credits for themselves. check the link by stephan-knapp and then talk.

    the website biz-agra you show is clearly a monetary agenda based site. you seem to have links with it! how long will the truth be suppressed for momentary gains of few anti-national selfish people?

  3. I think , darwaze open nahi hone chahiye kyon ki agar darwaje open hue aur agar wahaan hindu dharm se related kuch mil gaya to ayodhya wala kissa agra mein bhi dohraya jaega .
