The extreme state of perfection can be reflected through Taj Mahal

If you ever wanted to see how an architectural beauty even during those times could be, then it has symmetrical structures. I mean, its four sides are identical, which has been constructed on the principle of self replication by taking in mind the concept of geometry. It is this aspect which originates mirror reflection on either sides.

In view of the Mughal emperor’s main thought process signifying a more masculine, bolder and taller structure, he wanted to create the male tomb at a higher note than the female one and as a result, these two tombs are not equal. Another interesting aspect worth sharing is that, the four minarets are constructed in a position outside the plinth; this has been knowingly done, so that in the event if due to an accident, they happen to fall, then they won’t harm the main structure as they are going to fall outside.

Changing mood swings of this beauty

Quite like what can be related with the woman’s mood swings, the reflection of the same can be seen in Taj Mahal as well. Interestingly, there are different colors which become its characteristic during changing times. For example, if I talk about early morning, then there is pinkish hue, which soon turns into sparkling or glowing white with the progress of day. Yes, after dusk, there is a sense of golden touch in terms of its light, which can be seen in the moon light. Importantly, the beauty of Taj Mahal is worth seen during the time when there is full moon.


There was a rebellion

During 1857, rebellion, Taj Mahal was damaged partially. The attackers were slightly successful with their aim of harming the structure where they ransacked the beautiful garden and damaged few stones. However, Viceroy of British India, namely Lord Curzon in 19th century soon gave orders for its renovation which got into completion mode by 1908. The chandelier which is hung in Taj Mahal is the beautiful thought process and contribution from this man only.


Myths associated with Taj Mahal

There has been quite misconception which has percolated deep in the minds of people which is that Mughal king Shah Jahan had chopped the hands of all the workers associated with building Taj Mahal. This he done as he had the threat that others might hire them for building the structure again somewhere else. There is equally a second myth which has been doing the rounds since ages where it is said that he wanted to build not white but black TajMahal, but couldn’t for some reason.

Ensure that your documents are ready
