The sixteenth-century love story behind the Taj Mahal, The other Taj Mahal book than the monument itself, is the focus of this gorgeous picture book.

Cowritten by two seasoned children's-book authors, the heavily fictionalized narrative tells of the passionate first meeting, and ensuing devoted partnership, between Khurram, a Mogul prince, and his bride, Arjumand/5(6). I liked this book. It is historical fiction set in Mughal India.

Made for a fascinating read. The story moves in 3 directions simultaneously. A young Shahjahan falling in love with Arjumand (Mumtaz Mahal), an older Shahjahan building his dream or obsession of /5. This is a gorgeous book for looking at the details of the Taj Mahal, the fine stonework and the geometric and flower patterns.

This book has relatively few words and is mostly photographs, which is what I wanted: to see the Taj Mahal/5. Eight Secrets of the Taj Mahal The Taj Mahal is the pinnacle of Mughal architecture, constructed with impeccable symmetry according to the doctrines of the period’s style.

Other articles. The The other Taj Mahal book Taj Mahal Aditi Shah. January 21st follow. SHARE. Created with Sketch. Set against the backdrop of the rocky Deccan plateau, Bibi Ka Maqbara is a breathtaking sight as it looms in the distance on the road between Daulatabad and Aurangabad.

Often referred to as a substandard copy of the Taj Mahal, this monument has not only. Nou's book is my first choice while I like other ($30 book on Amazon) "THE COMPLETE TAJ MAHAL" by Ebba Koch which is equally good for exterior photographs.

Koch's book has very limited coverage for interior but that covers more photos for gates and 2 adjoining structures of the complex/5(14). Unlike this book and its forerunner, titled Taj Mahal was a Rajput Palace, which are research works, all other books and accounts of the Taj Mahal written during the last years are based on pure fantasy.

We were surprised to learn after meticulous inquiry that. The Taj Mahal (, more often ; [2] from Persian and Arabic, "crown of palaces", pronounced) is a white marble mausoleum located on the southern bank of the Yamuna River in the Indian city of was commissioned in by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan (reigned –) to house the tomb of his favorite wife of three, Mumtaz Mahal.

Construction of the mausoleum was essentially. Black Taj, Kaala Taj (also The 2nd Taj) is a legendary black marble mausoleum that is said to have been planned to be built across the Yamuna River opposite the Taj Mahal in Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India.

Mughal emperor Shah Abhash Khan is said to have desired a mausoleum for himself similar to that of the one he had built in memory of his second wife, Mumtaz Mahal. Today, there are two marble palaces in Agra, one is the Mausoleum of Idmat-ud-Daula, the father of Noorjahan and the other is Taj Mahal, and it is evident from the Munj Bateswar edict that, once upon a time, one of them was the temple of Lord Vishnu and the other was a temple of Lord Siva.

The True Story of the Taj Mahal By P. Oak The story of the Taj Mahal that most of us have known about may not be the real truth. Herein Mr. Oak presents an interesting set of proofs that show a completely different story.

Contrary to what visitors are made to believe the Tajmahal is not a Islamic mausoleum but an ancient Shiva. According to the Taj Mahal Museum, Akbarabadi Mahal lies in the western tomb, and Sirhindi Mahal lies in the eastern tomb. Akbarabadi Mahal was a favorite consort in the last reigning days of Shah Jahan and the wife that he spoke highly of to his daughter, Jahanara, in his final moments (Koch, ).
