Hidden Truth-of-Tajmahal – Was the taj mahal a vedic temple ?


BBC says about Taj Mahal – Hidden Truth – Never say it is a Tomb The Old Hindu Temple



No one has ever challenged it except Prof. P. N. Oak, who believes the whole world has been duped. In his book Taj Mahal: The True Story, Oak says the Taj Mahal is not Queen Mumtaz’s tomb but an ancient Hindu temple palace of Lord Shiva (then known as Tejo Mahalaya). In the course of his research Oak discovered that the Shiva temple palace was usurped by Shah Jahan from then Maharaja of Jaipur, Jai Singh. In his own court chronicle, Badshahnama,Shah Jahan admits that an exceptionally beautiful grand mansion in Agra was taken from Jai SIngh for Mumtaz’s burial . The ex-Maharaja of Jaipur still retains in his secret collection two orders from Shah Jahan for
surrendering the Taj building. Using captured temples and mansions, as a
burial place for dead courtiers and royalty was a common practice among Muslim rulers.

For example, Humayun,Akbar, Etmud-ud-Daula and Safdarjung are all buried in such mansions. Oak’s inquiries began with the name of Taj Mahal. He says the term “Mahal” has never been used for a building in any Muslim countries from Afghanisthan to Algeria. “The unusual explanation that the term Taj Mahal derives from Mumtaz Mahal was illogical in atleast two respects.

Firstly, her name was never Mumtaz Mahal but Mumtaz-ul-Zamani,” he writes. Secondly, one cannot omit the first three letters ‘Mum’ from a woman’s name to derive the remainder as the name for the building.”Taj Mahal, he claims, is a corrupt version of Tejo Mahalaya, or Lord Shiva’s Palace. Oak
also says the love story of Mumtaz and Shah Jahan is a fairy tale created by
court sycophants, blundering historians and sloppy archaeologists . Not a single royal chronicle of Shah Jahan’s time corroborates the love story.

Furthermore, Oak cites several documents suggesting the Taj Mahal predates Shah Jahan’s era, and was a temple dedicated to Shiva, worshipped by Rajputs of Agra city. For example, Prof. Marvin Miller of New York took a few samples from the riverside doorway of the Taj. Carbon dating tests revealed that the door was 300 years older than Shah Jahan. European traveler Johan Albert Mandelslo,who visited Agra in 1638 (only seven years after Mumtaz’s death), describes the life of the cit y in his memoirs. But he makes no reference to the Taj Mahal being built. The writings of Peter Mundy, an English visitor to Agra within a year of Mumtaz’s death, also suggest the
Taj was a noteworthy building well before Shah Jahan’s time.

Prof. Oak points out a number of design and architectural inconsistencies that support the belief of the Taj Mahal being a typical Hindu temple
rather than a mausoleum. Many rooms in the Taj ! Mahal have remained sealed since Shah Jahan’s time and are still inaccessible to the public. Oak
asserts they contain a headless statue of Lord Shiva and other objects commonly used for worship rituals in Hindu temples . Fearing political backlash, Indira Gandhi’s government tried to have Prof. Oak’s book
withdrawn from the bookstores, and threatened the Indian publisher of the
first edition dire consequences . There is only one way to discredit or validate Oak’s research.

The current government should open the sealed rooms of the Taj Mahal under U.N. supervision, and let international experts investigate. Do circulate this to all you know and let them know about this reality…..

Hey  please check this link ……..it adds as a visual proof



  1. I believe Prof. Oak. I have visited the Taj Mahal, I mean, the Tejo Mahalaya many times, and I know that there are Vedic signs thrown all over the place. In the gardens, in the fountain design, also there was an inscription Plaque placed near the Tejo Mahalaya that it was built in 1155 AD and its splendour was such that Lord Shiva himself left Kailash and came there to stay forever. This inscription Plaque is now present in Lucknow Library. It is falsely called as the Bateshwar Temple inscription, when the same inscription stone fits in perfectly in a niche on the ground present in front of the Taj.

  2. Surely a Political Trick to spread rumors and uncertainity among the nation……….. Just a crap……. If it was so…. why is it being reveled now and was never studied by worlds best historians???? Even when it was nominated among the 7 Wonders???? Do they put it in Top 7 Worders of the World without any studies and factfindings????????? Stop acting like a kid and be mature guys……… then only you can prevent yourself from being misguided……… Be Rational……. Act Wise….. Does it make us pride as an indian if it is a Muslim or Hindu monument???????? Or we feel Proud as an indian coz it is one of the 7 Wonders???????

  6. This info. may be true, because the of the fact that, Sir John Marshal of the Indus valley civilisatin fame..also misguided peaple of the above mentioned civilisation being the oldest in the world. However, the facts today proove that there was another much advanced civilisation much before the indus…named the Narmada valley civilasation. The concept of Aryans & Dravidians could also be a fake..inorder to create a rift among North n South Indians. It was also mentioned by a british vice-roy..that inorder to destroy a country…polluting the education system with fake facts is the most potent methods..

  7. Real History of Taj Mahal (Synonym: Taj = Crown, Mahal = Palace)

    The extravagant expression has not come easy. There underlays an ocean of emotions and a wild passion that led the king to erect such a masterpiece in snow-white marble. It’s a monument, the only one, where perhaps, ever inch of the edifice, from one corner to the other, expresses the beauty of Mumtaz Mahal. Mughal emperor’s Shah Jahan’s intense feelings and warmheartedness can be felt at the very first instant as you arrive here to fix your gaze upon one of the most phenomenal structures in the world. History of Taj mahal

    The splendid love story begins in 1612, when a Persian princess Arjumand Bano married Shah Jahan (then prince Khurram), the fifth Mughal emperor. Arjumand Bano, who later became known as Mumtaz Mahal (the Chosen of the Palace), was a second wife to the emperor. Both a companion and an advisor, the queen followed the emperor on his journeys and military expeditions. Such was the effect of the queen on his emperor-husband that Shah Jahan was inspired to perform acts of charity and benevolence all throughout his life.

    The love story took a serious turn when, on a campaign at Burhanpur with her husband, Mumtaz Mahal took his last breath giving birth to their 14th child. So heartbroken was the emperor that the whole court went into mourning for a span of over two years. It is said that, within a few months after the queen’s death, the hair and beard of the king had turned white. And Shah Jahan was recklessly determined on building a monument in his consort’s loving memory that the world had never seen.

    The dead body of the queen was brought to Agra and buried in a garden on the banks of river Yamuna. A group of the finest architects was assembled to devise a plan for erecting the tomb. Eventually, Ustad Isa, a Persian architect, was called upon to design the structure. The master architect along with his pupil Ustad Ahmad began the construction of the edifice. The dome, however, was fashioned by Ismail Khan. A total of 20,000 labourers from across the country and the world were employed to work for 22 years continuously. Finest of the marbles were procured from the district of Markana near Jodhpur. Precious and semi precious stones were brought from far off places.

    Later, the mausoleum was provided with luxuriant furnishings. Persian carpets and gold lamps embellished the interior of the Taj. Two silver gates, that were set up at the entrance, were taken away by Suraj Mal in 1764. Amir Husein Ali Khan looted the sheet of pearls that covered the stone coffins.

    It is said, that after the completion of the construction, when emperor Shah Jahan viewed the Taj, he ordered his men to cut off the right hand of the master architect Ustad Isa, so the later may not be able to erect such a stately and imposing edifice again in his life. There’s another legend that says Shah Jahan was contemplating to build yet another Taj Mahal across the river in black marble.

    Now, it’s up to you how many more legends you can make yourself aware of while on a trip to Agra, the city of the Taj. Get accompanied by a travel guide and begin exploring the myths and legends, poring over the glorious chapters of the history. (Taj Mahal THE ULTIMATE EPITOME OF LOVE)

  8. From historical records available this was a unique feat. “Mumtaz was buried thrice at three different places,” says Amit Mukherjea, who heads the history department of St John’s College.

    Most people do not know that the foundation of the Taj was actually laid in Burhanpur but because of the problems and costs involved in the transportation of marble from Rajasthan, Agra became the final choice.

    “It was in Ahu Khana in Burhanpur on the bank of the Tapti river that her body was buried to be later transferred to Agra,” according to KK Mohammed of ASI.

    But the question relating to the technique of embalming and preservation remains unanswered.

    Afsar Ahmed, a media researcher deeply interested in Mughal history, said, “You might find it difficult to believe but there’s a possibility that the body of Mumtaz Mahal is still preserved in the Taj Mahal in the same condition as she was when she passed away. Mumtaz Mahal was buried six months after she passed away in June 1631. She was, however, buried in Jan 1632.”

    The question that arises now is: how was her body preserved? Ahmed quotes a report prepared by Armanul Haq, the curator in the Museum of History and Medicine in the Jamia Hamdard University, who claims that Mumtaz Mahal’s body was preserved according to Unani techniques.

    The process was used because cutting a body after death is prohibited in Islam. That is why when Mumtaz Mahal passed away in 1631 in Burhanpur, her body was kept in a tin box filled with such herbs as would stop the decay of flesh.

    “The airtight tin box was filled with herbs like the ash of Babul tree (acacia), Mehendi (henna), Kapoor crystals (camphor), sandalwood ash, and then again camphor applied in layers upon layers. These herbs would have created a vacuum inside the box and prevented the decay of the body. A point to be noted here is that none of these herbs were put inside Mumtaz Mahal’s body,” says Ahmed.

    If her body is still preserved and in fine shape, shall we call it the success of the Indian technique of mummification?
