    I've read much of the same overwhelming evidence from a variety of sources online that reveals the Taj Mahal to be an ancient Shiva temple aka Tejo Mahalaya, built centuries before Shah Jahan's reign. However, we have not heard much about it because it was banned by the corrupt and power crazed Congress government of Bharat who did not want to alienate their precious minority vote bank.

    discuss...

    shak Harrr!

    the opening paragraph at http://www.flex.com/~jai/satyamevajayate/tejo.html is enuff to make me believe that this is nothing but a narrow-minded propaganda!.. ...taj mahal was built as a symbol of love.. the very design of the building reflects the islamic architecture at its very best, the dome and the minarets.. it is a beauty to be cherished not to be bashed and stamped by some idiotic conspiracy theories...if it was a hindu temple and shah jahan was aware of that fact ... then he made the bloodiest mistake of his life ( i wonder why didnt the hindu dignataries of the court raised any voices if this was the case.. hmmmm ) .. if it wasnt a hindu temple and it was built from scratch to serve the purpose of a resting place for his wife... then well and good he made bloody well job of it :)

    Was built by Shah Jehan, brilliant piece of architecture, that's all. No stupid theories about it being an ancient temple or anything. Atleast i dont believe in them.

    It's better to see the Taj as a symbol of love.

    yeah d_ist_urb_ed even i feel the same. n there is no point in discussing such issues. i think as far as IGT is concerned, we all gather here coz of one common interest that is MUSIC, which has no boundaries..................................................

    Its a beautiful structure. We Indians take pride in it. Its a symbol for love. Thats about it. Its got nothing to do with religion in my opinion.

    We can't escape from controversies, it's a part of our life. We are to face all that. But as Tejas said we all are really proud of the Taj. It's a symbol of Love.

    it is a well established fact that the moghuls used the strong foundations of pre existing hindu structures, especially hindu temples to build thier own.. as it served 2 purposes.. strong structures and spread of islam. aurangazeb was the worst amongst the moghuls in this respect.. cause he wasnt even a good architect unlike shah jahan, all he did was demolish :p:

    taj mahal, qutub minar.. numerious mosques.. all built over demolished pre existing structures, especially temples. I think thats a well established fact. the hindu zealots in VHP now want to mimic the moghuls and taliban and want to demolish what people with 15th and 16th century mentality did 500 years ago now in the 21st century. thats a stupid thing and a well established fact as well.
    ne ways this is IGT dunno what this thread is doing here.
