Taj Mahal, Agra, INDIA

Taj Mahal is the name of a monument located in Agra, India. It was commissioned by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, the son of Jahangir, as a mausoleum for his Persian wife, Arjumand Banu Begum, also known as Mumtaz-ul-Zamani. It took 23 years to complete (1630 - 1653).

The names "Taj" and "Mahal" are of Urdu origin. Taj in Urdu means crown or diadem. While Mahal means palace/edifice or a stately mansion, it is sometimes simply and evocatively referred to as the Taj.

    I visited Taj Mahal in 2003 and said to myself, if only Men of our time could do something for the Women of their life time.. then there would be No cases of adultery in our societies, NO bastards on our streets and No Slavery in our Homes and Bob Marleys’song “No Woman No cry” would be barned forever!

    Most recent information which can be confirmed via the vedic writer Stephen Knapp (one can check his website) proves that the Taj Mahal was in fact NOT built bt Shah Jehan. In fact, it is stated that this is/was an ancient Vedic temple which the moguls took from the Hindu Raj when Islam invaded. It is thus important that ‘true’ history be told and not camouflaged by invaders who were supposed to be guests in India.
