Let's walk through the Taj Mahal today.
I will take you on a pictorial tour.
A huge Darwaza surrounded by a wall guards the teardrop inside
As you come closer it's awesome majesty hits you
We enter the huge gateway and we see it.
It seems nearer than it is
The wonder of the world

The Taj Mahal, one of the New 7 Wonders of the World is in Agra, India. A symbol of love, it was commissioned in 1632 by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan to house the tomb of his favourite wife, Mumtaz Mahal, as well as his own tomb too.

A thread on the artistry of the #TajMahal
1/ The Taj Mahal was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for being "the jewel of Muslim art in India & one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world's heritage". It is regarded by many as the best example of Mughal architecture

2/ A labour force of about 20,000 workers were recruited to build the Taj Mahal. There was also a creative unit of 37 men employed including sculptors from Bukhara, calligraphers from Syria & Persia, inlayers from southern India & Stone cutters from Baluchistan…

BREAKING: Jagadguru Paramhans Acharya moves Allahabad High Court after denial of entry to #Tajmahal.
The Acharya and his pupil were denied entry to the monument twice owing to their Dharmdand and Bhagwa Vastra.
The Jagadguru has argued that in the Hindu religion Jagatguru has the authority to take Dharmdand and wear Bhagwa Vastra and they are allowed 'to go anywhere in India' without any permission and they also can travel by any mode of transport.
His petition states, "Now petitioners have doubt that there is some mystery in the #Tajmahal and they have suspicion that there were some ancient Hindu temples (there)...Therefore, the matter needs proper investigation."

#Hindu #Funerary Monuments - Chhatri

Chhatri is a memorial chapel built over a #tomb found throughout the region of #Rajasthan, #MadhyaPradesh and #Maharashtra. These memorials commemorate the death of rulers, their consorts, relatives and the elite. 1/🧵
If Samadhis were funerary monuments of saints in #Hindus, Chhatris were #Rajput's choice of the memorial. They made sure that the memory of the chivalry of their ancestors passed on to the next generations. Though, all Chhatris did not necessarily contain the mortal remains. 2/
Chhatri i.e. umbrella, first appeared as a canopy above the tomb in #Islamic #architecture. #Hindu kings transformed the tomb into Chhatri. By the 16th C, Rajput courts had started building Chhatris. It was a place where a noble was cremated, memorialized and later worshipped. 3/

Shah Jahan is said to have loved his wife Mumtaz Mahal so much that he built her the greatest monument in history, the Taj Mahal. Now it is considered as the most important symbol of love. However, is the love of Shah Jahan for his wife portrayed in the correct manner?
Firstly, Mumtaz was not the only wife of Shah Jahan. He had several other wives. In fact, he married three others and historians say he loved them also as much as Mumtaz. Secondly, Shah Jahan had made a promise to Mumtaz that he would never marry anyone else after she died.

THREAD: Even if you set aside all the crimes he’s committed as President, we now have a clear picture of 10 provable crimes Trump committed BEFORE he even became President #FridayThoughts #TrumpTrainwreck (1/11)
1. Sexual Assault.

More than two dozen women have accused Trump of sexual misconduct, assault, or rape. In 2020, Bill Barr is protecting Trump in a case where he refuses to give a DNA sample that would theoretically clear his name.
2. Racial Discrimination.

Before becoming the #BirtherInChief, Trump already had a long and well-documented history of racism, much of it illegal.

Yamuna is dying, and so is Taj...

#Agra #TajMahal
As I sat by myself at the end of an exhausting day, I could finally see the world that surrounded the #TajMahal. When the Mu'adhin in a nearby mosque made a call for prayers, I too closed my eyes praying that this was all just a nightmare. It wasn’t.
You’ve seen me a traveller who shares beautiful images and fun stories of the places that I visit, so why I am sharing this today? Well, I indeed debated the need to share this, and the more I thought about it, the more I was convinced it was the right thing to do.
