Taj Mahal - A masterpiece of Mughal architecture

A Monument of Love

The Taj Mahal is located on the south bank of the Jumna River outside the Indian city of Agra. It was built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan as his queen Arjund Bano, also known as Mumtaz Mahal. Built in the memory of Mumtaz Mahal in 1612, Shah Jahan married Mumtaz Mahal for 19 years and after a happy life, Mumtaz Mahal died in the town of Burhanpur in 1631. Before his death, Mumtaz Mahal said these last words to Shah Jahan that after my death you should not remarry and you should build a monument for me which the world saw in amazement. Shah Jahan fulfilled this promise and built a beautiful building which Counted among the seven wonders of the world. When Jackie Kennedy, the wife of US President Kennedy, came to India on an official visit to India, she told reporters that she had come to see the Taj Mahal to see if there was a man who could loved his woman so much.

Taj Mahal in danger: -

The only monument of its kind in the world is now in danger due to environmental pollution. The beauty of the Taj Mahal is deteriorating. Strong gusts from Rajasthan have begun to yellow the white marble of the Taj Mahal. Oil refinery fumes and factory chemicals and dirt have endangered the beauty of the Taj Mahal. With the addition of sulfur dioxide in the air, its color is changing from white to yellow. Shah Jahan chose the banks of the Jumna for the Taj Mahal to keep the building cool with its water, But it is unfortunate that the Jumna River has changed its course here and the hot winds of Rajasthan have turned here and there. We will die only after eliminating some excuses. It seems that after Babri Masjid, now it is the turn of Taj Mahal. Concerned neo-hippies and their global warming, i'll tell ya. This is the same trick that the Hindus used for the Babri Masjid. But from a historical point of view, this claim proves to be confusing because the time of Chand Gupta Moriah is 351 BC. Its capital was also Patna.

Order to remove encroachments: -

In 1984, MC Mehta, a Hindu advocate from India, filed a writ petition in the court to save the beauty of the Taj Mahal, which was decided by the Supreme Court on December 30, 1996. That the industrial establishments around the Taj Mahal be shifted to other places whose presence is affecting the beauty of the Taj Mahal. The Supreme Court also directed to plant trees within a radius of 500 meters around the crown. With this order of the Supreme Court, about one thousand factories will have to be removed from here. The forest department has acquired land for planting sesame, neem, jasmine and other trees here. The Supreme Court has also written this in its decision. The Taj Mahal generates millions of dollars a day from 15,000 tourists. With this income, necessary amenities should be provided around the Taj Mahal. Some experts say the Taj Mahal is more at risk from traffic and diesel generators than from industrial areas.

Taj Mahal must be saved

In World War II, France and all European countries appealed to Hitler to save the beauty of Paris and the rare artefacts of the artists. France surrendered to Hitler to save Paris. Heartless and warriors like Hitler also stopped attacking a beautiful city like Paris. German troops passed through Paris quietly and saved Paris from destruction. Such a large government of India cannot pity a building. The Taj Mahal is not a monument to a British ruler but a monument built by the king of his own country.
