Is Taj Mahal A Shiva Temple? CIC Asks Govt To Clarify Whether It Is A Mausoleum Or A Hindu Temple

Crown of the Palace, Taj Mahal is yet again in controversy as the Central Information Commission (CIC) has directed the Union culture ministry to clarify that whether the Taj Mahal is a mausoleum built by Shahjahan or a Shiva temple. CIC wants the government to clear its stand on the pending cases which raise the questions on the origin of the monument.

According to some so-called historians, Taj Mahal was originally a Shiva Temple gifted to the Mughals by a Rajput king. The wonder was later developed into a monument which became the habitat of the graves of Emperor Shah Jahan and his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal.

An RTI application was filed by B K S R Ayyangar asking whether the monument in Agra was the Taj Mahal or “Tejo Mahalaya”.

According to the Hindustan Times, in his RTI application, he said: “Many people stating that Taj Mahal is not Taj Mahal and it is Tejo Mahalaya: that this was not constructed by Shahjahan, but was gifted by Raja Maan Singh; hence give the facts as per ASI reports-details with evidence.”

He also demanded the construction details of the monument.

Information Commissioner Sridhar Acharyulu ordered the ministry to clear its stand and clarify all the doubts related to the history of the white marble mausoleum.

Acharyulu stated: “It is unreasonable to ask for the opening of closed rooms, bringing out hidden things, and for excavations underneath the protected monument of Taj Mahal and rewriting the history under an RTI application.”

He further added: “Decision regarding excavation has to be taken by the concerned competent authority and Commission cannot give directions to excavate or open the hidden or closed rooms in Taj Mahal.”
