The Taj Mahal is one of the most grandeurs and impressive buildings ever built. After all, the Taj Mahal Palace is considered one of the seven wonders of the modern world.
The story behind Taj Mahal is that the emperor Shan Jahan, who was a Mughal Emperor, built the palace to serve as a tomb for his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal.
The complex spreads across 42 acres, and aside from the tomb includes a mosque, a guest house, gardens and crenellated wall.
But what lies beneath the Taj Mahal? Over the years, many historians have tried to find the true origin of the palace. Many myths have surfaced the public discourse, but none of them have been proven.
The documentary “The Secrets of the Taj Mahal” doesn’t explain any of the myths. But it does something even better. The video explains how the Taj Mahal was built, and all the challenges that the emperor and his builders faced.
One must remember that back in the days when the palace was built (in the 17th century), architecture was not as advanced. So they had to innovate, and innovate they did. One of the innovations was they built a well foundation, a revolutionary idea that we still use today. Check out the other innovations and obstacles the Emperor faced.
