Secrets Of The Taj Mahal

The Taj Mahal: Symbol of India, architectural jewel, and monument to a grand passion. Built in the 17th century by the Great Mogul Shah Jahan in honor of Mumtaz Mahal, the love of his life. Before she died, legend says, Mumtaz Mahal made a wish for a mausoleum, more sublime than any the world had seen.

They say that by the year 1500, for 22 years, hundreds of workers have been struggling to raise an impressive palace for  the Great Mogul Shah Jahan. When it was ready, the mogul came and spent no more and no less than one night! This gives relaxation to the mogul!

Beyond the clichés, the Temple of Love you created a state of grace and true story transports you into a magical world. Considered the pinnacle of art Moguai ever, Taj Mahal is in free translation “Pearl Temples”. Since 1983 listed the eight wonders of the modern world and attracts millions of tourists every year.

According to legend – largely confirmed by history – the Taj Mahal was built between 1631 – 1648 at the request of Shah Jahan to immortalize the memory of his wife Mumtaz and their love. She died after she gave birth to the 14 th child. This, devastated with grief, swore that he would raise the memory of their heroic mother of just 38 years a temple before which will last and amaze over the centuries. He hired the most gifted architects around the world, and after 17 years the hallucinatory masterpiece was finished by the cost of 2000 lives of builders and workers who died crushed under the marble.

Today, 15,000 visitors on average per day enjoy the splendor that is the Taj Mahal. On sunny days, from sunrise and twilight and full moon nights semi-precious stones such as turquoise and quartz bonded after the ancient and mysterious trick blue and white marble changes its colors in a delightful spectacle for the eyes. But the most beautiful marble in India, specially brought from Rajasthan about 400 years ago, is spectacular and the fog. In fact, the temple looks like a mirage, and unless you know it’s real, you’d think it’s an illusion. Regarding the secret magic of bonding on marble stones, to say that this is not a myth. Confidentiality of this information is sacred, and today only a few dozen master craftsmen know this secret. If we were to give credence to the guide, more than a decade Bill Clinton himself would be interested – more in jest, half in earnest – of the secret of Taj Mahal. I answered, more in jest: “Mr. President, we’ll tell you the secret Taj Mahal, if you tell us first what is the secret of Coca Cola.”

A heavenly memorial to the Queen of the World, or as a poet described it: “A teardrop on the cheek of time”. A love poem set in stone and the most perfect building in the world.

Regardless of its secrets, Taj Mahal is certainly one of the most fascinating buildings in the world. So much has Shah Jahan wanted to be remembered over centuries has created a temple mortal immortal, that after completion, he had anger grandeur minds. He was close to hand cut to order all craftsmen who built the temple. The reason? One very simple: that you do not like these builders to raise any lofty temple in May than any other chess Taj Mahal to the mogul eclipsing him as his priceless masterpiece. But eventually he left persuaded and found a less bloody way to ensure uniqueness of her work and her legacy. He bought with a lot of money the workers promise that they will “leave the job”. The stratagem worked, and “the non-corrupt” continued their lives in luxury, never needing to work again.
