     It is considered that the main architect was Ustad Ahmad Lahauri6,7 from Lahore .......

    Taj Mahal was not constructed by Shah Jahan

    The most shocking mystery of the Taj Mahal is that it was built just before Shah Jahan reigned over Agra. As the book "The Authentic History of the Taj Mahal" indicates, the fortress was originally a shrine of Lord Shiva, created by the ancient Rajput people of Agra. After that, the shrine was defeated by Shah Jahan after winning the fight against him against Rajputs. This is an extremely difficult mystery of the Taj Mahal that is not yet proven by any administrative body.

    The reasons for building the Taj Mahal

    We all know that the Taj Mahal is proof of a husband's love for his wife. It would be the grave that the husband built for his deceased wife much younger than him, and his magnificence would correspond to the love she bore him. It's a very beautiful story, but would not it be a legend?

    Well no. The Taj Mahal was built for Mumtaz Mahal, 3rd wife of the 5th Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, who had a great love for him. When she died on June 17, 1631, giving birth to her 14th child, she was buried in Burhanpur, where she died. But this grave was temporary, it was decided by Shah Jahan who decided, ravaged by grief, to build his wife a mausoleum as beautiful as was his love for her. He put 22 years to this task and partially ruined the treasure of the Mughals, but the case was up to his expectations. The Taj Mahal was born. So this story is very real.

    On the other hand, what is false is the desire to build a second Taj Mahal on the other side of the black river, which would have served as a tomb for the emperor. This is false, archaeological research has shown signs of construction, the Mehtab Bagh ("Garden of the Moon"), but it is not a 2nd Taj Mahal. Besides, it would have been impossible to build, the finances of the Empire had been emptied by this first construction.

     The Mysterious Rooms of Taj Mahal

     Taj Mahal, similar to any other memorial, also has many entrances and halls of mystery. There are various rooms of this type in the Taj Majal which have been closed since the time of Shah Jahan. These pieces found evidence that the tomb was a shrine of Lord Shiva according to research specialists.

    Changing colors:
      only a few people know that with the different sunlight, the Taj Mahal changes beautiful colors. It is thought that this change of color is symbolic of a woman's change of mood. In the morning, its color is slightly pinkish, while in the evening it is milky white. These colors add to the incomparable beauty of the Taj Mahal.

    The secret of Pillars:

    There are four minarets in the Taj Mahal. All are deliberately constructed slightly inclined from the platform. This is done as a precaution in earthquakes. If there was an earthquake and the minarets fell, they would fall from the main structure, the grave. Without harming the magnificent work of art. The four sides of the Taj Mahal are completely identical, surprisingly creating a mirror image for visitors on each side. It is based on the principles of self-replicable geometry and the correct balance of the fundamentals of architecture.

    The water intake:

      There is a small stream of water in the Taj Mahal flowing out of nowhere. The source of the stream is not visible. According to the researchers, the stream comes from the same source that poured water on the Shivlinga while the Muslim tomb was actually a Hindu temple. This is one of the most fascinating hidden secrets of the Taj Mahal. Many of these secrets raise a question about the identity of the grave.
