    OAK This book is dedicated in grateful memory particularly to Her Highness the late Maharani Chandrawati Holkar of Indore, to whose munificence the author owes a part of his academic education, and generally to the great Kshatriya community of India which defended the faith and culture of the country against foreign invasions for milleniums with exemplary devotion to duty, courage, sacrifice and a very high standard of magnanimity and moral purity which distinguish it from all soldiery anywhere in the world. Oak Are Also Available. But what is not so well known is the true story of its origin, that its magnificence stems from its having originated as a palace. It is a pity that the Taj Mahal is believed to have originated as a sombre tomb in the 17th century when it was perhaps built in the 4th century to serve as a palace. The changeover has proved a shroud deluding everybody from lay visitors to researchers and history scholars that the Taj was built as a sepulchre. Popular nostalgia for legendary love has helped fan the flame of Shahjahan's mythical attachment to Mumtaz into a raging fire, enveloping the Taj in the dazzle of leaping flames and blinding smoke of imaginary accounts, discouraging any cool, dispassionate research about its origin. The utter incompatibility and inconsistency of the loose bits of information mouthed and written about the Taj Mahal, clanking to a crescendo of jarring notes in my subconscious mind. Impelled me to attempt sorting them out from a tangled mass and piecing them together to find out whether they made a coherent and plausible account. Preface To my amazement it led me to an unexpected conclusion, namely, that far from originating as a mediaeval tomb the Taj was built by a powerful Rajput king as his palace in pre-Muslim times. My research has also led to an incidental but nonetheless important finding, that the Peacock Throne too is perhaps as ancient as the Taj Mahal, and that it used to be placed in the chamber which encloses the cenotaphs of Shahjahan and Mumtaz. My conclusions are based on a number of historical works, both mediaeval and modern. A list of them appears at the end of this book.

    The ghosts of Shahjahan and Mumtaz have haunted the Taj Mahal story in the minds of the people for long years. It is high time that people's minds were exorcised.

    Taj Mahal Essay in Hindi – ताजमहल पर निबंध

    Another very important purpose we have in mind in unravelling the Taj Mahal-creation-riddle is to expose the unmethodical and slipshod manner in which many far-reaching concepts have been grafted on Indian history, and foisted on gullible, unsuspecting lay contemporaries and on posterity. Reconstructing the story of the origin of the Taj Mahal should serve as a practice-lesson in research methodology, exposing lapses committed so far and highlighting the principles and safeguards that need to be kept in view by history researchers and teachers.

    This book is also intended to impress on every reader that it is not the cenotaphs which should monopolize his or her attention. The visitor must go round the entire premises, walk along its long arched corridors, run up the Taj Mahal's many storeys and its marble and redstone towers and minutely examine its many vaulted doorways.

    The two tombs in the basement and the cenotaphs above them on the ground floor are, if anything, but obstructions in the spacious, octagonal chambers of this ancient Hindu palace. One of these rooms housed the ancient Hindu Peacock Throne which too was grabbed by Shahjahan along with the palace.

    Thoughtful readers unwittingly but nonetheless irrevocably committed, academically or communally, to the view that Taj Mahal is a Muslim monument are likely to feel perturbed, disturbed and hurt by the revelation in this book. Some others are likely to welcome the discovery of the Taj Mahal's ancient Hindu origin as a coveted truth. To both such we would like to say that to us Truth is like water - tasteless and colourless, divine, pure and life - giving - neither sweet nor bitter.

    For us Truth is a mere object of discovery - as, in fact, it should be in all creative endeavour.

    We hardly care if some feel elated or dejected by the discovery of the Hindu antecedents of the Taj Mahal. In the field of histroy such a breath-taking and epoch-making Introduction 17 discovery, proving the whole world wrong, is a rare occurrence.

    All the same we claim no personal credit or victory because such discoveries are impossible without supra-natural guidance, opportunity and inspiration. But to those who would want to underrate or pooh-pooh the antecedents of the Taj Mahal as being of no consequence for a real appraisal of its delicate contours, majestic dimensions and enchanting embellishment we would like to address a few words. Looking at the Taj Mahal as a tomb or a palace makes a world of difference.

    A palace is the residence of the prosperous, wealthy and powerful, and therefore a down-to-earth buidling. A tomb, on the other hand, is the weird, eerie abode of those who have given up the ghost. Visitors or students labouring under the misapprehension that the Taj Mahal is a mausoleum regard the graves inside it as the focal object of admiration and thereby miss the real beauty of that vast building-complex.

    On the other hand if visitors and students of history studied the Taj Mahal as a palace they would find their observation rapturously rewarding. In the latter case they would no longer be content with peeping into the burial chamber and walking out, calling it a day, as many have hitherto been prone to do, but would insist on roaming around its spacious grounds, going around its periphery, ambling along its spacious terraces, stumbling through its dark basement chambers and climbing its towers and upper storeys.

    Among the many difficulties one encounters in driving a new startling discovery deep down into the basic convictions of the people is one of frivolous objections. For example erudite teachers of history sometimes, in all honesty, refuse to look into historical rebuttals on the ground that "original" historical sources are not quoted.

    This attitude of theirs has two faults. One is their assumption of the supercilious role of a judge to which they are not entitled.

    Whatever their academic or bureaucratic standing they must feel a sense of belonging and participation in all research and regard themselves as humble seekers after the Truth, having as good a stake in the rebuttal as the pioneer himself. Looked at from this point of view their self-chosen role of sitting on the sidelines and blowing the whistle like a fault-finding referee is highly improper.

    The other fault in their peculiar stand-offish and judgment- 18 The Taj Mahal Is A Temple Palace pronouncing attitude is the very mechanical, nonchalant and even irresponsible way in which they raise an objection, that the source quoted is only "secondary" and not "original". They feel they are therefore justified in ignoring my research - findings. They clutch at this to ease the qualms of their academic conscience.

    To all such we would like to say that the technical objection of the source being "original" or "secondary" is relevant only if the facts cited are not admitted. Even a court of law and justice takes judicial notice of age-old facts. Similarly, scholars of history and for that matter other branches of study, have got to take "historical notice" of facts which are not disputed.

    For instance, in the following pages when we quote Vincent Smith or Elliot and Dowson it is only to produce before the reader quick, cut and dry, capsule-form, well-digested, translated and summarised evidence from readily available volumes. So long as facts quoted by them are not doubted the objection that the original source has not been quoted is absolutely unjustified if not downright mischievous. How many people can get access to the hand-written originals?

    If so many people do in fact handle those originals, how long will those originals be available for posterity? And what research could proceed to any appreciable degree if at every stage the researcher's footsteps are dogged with the argument that he has not produced all original sources, all over the world, in all languages, on every point?

    This way it would be impossible to write even a word.

    Have the objectors themselves ever tried it in the tomes they have written! Before the scholarly reader thinks of raising any such objection, therefore, we would request him to consider whether he disputes the quoted facts or words. If the facts or words quoted are not disputed they do not need any artificial props of authority, whether primary or secondary. The discovery that the Taj Mahal is a Hindu palace should serve to change the perspective of even the Government of India's Archaeological Department.

    So far they had been under the impression that if the two pairs of cenotaphs were kept open to public inspection that was being generous enough. But once it is admitted that the Taj Mahal is a palace, that small mercy will not be enough. The Introduction 19 barred basements, the many towers, the upper storeys of the marble structure and the subterranean passage leading to the fort will all have to be well cleaned and thrown open to public view.

    In browsing through the subsequent pages the reader should be conscious of the very far - reaching bearing that our finding has on both Indian and world history. One very devastating effect of this book is that at one stroke it renders obsolete all the romantic and pseudo-historic hodge-podge written in prose or poetry about the Taj Mahal throughout the world during the last years. Architects, as much as historians, may find much to learn and unlearn in reading through the following pages.

    Professional historians and architects would do well to get over their initial shock, consternation and disbelief, prepare themselves to jettison their traditional belief in the mythical Indo-Saracenic architecture theory, and instead learn to view extant mediaeval monuments as products of pure ancient, indigenous architecture.

    Suitable amendments in historical and architectural textbooks will have to be made sooner or later. Historians, architects and visitors to monuments should now be prepared to shed some of their carefully nursed assumptions based on fallacious tutoring and motivated brainwashing about the so-called Muslim contribution to mediaeval architecture.

    Muslim contribution to mediaeval architecture in India and all over the world is severely limited to misappropriating Hindu, Christian or Zionist buildings by inscribing Arabic lettering outside or implanting cenotaphs inside. The world-famous Taj Mahal, the Red Forts in Delhi and Agra, the so-called Jama Masjid in Agra, the so-called Fatehpuri Mosque in Delhi and the innumerable monuments in cities like Ahmedabad, Jaunpur, Allahabad, Mandavgadh, Bidar, Bijapur, Fatehpur Sikri and Aurangabad are glaring and graphic instances of such wholesale misappropriation and deception of the entire world.

    It is hoped that researchers and writers would come forward to write books on individual townships and monuments of mediaeval India and the world to expose what the late Sir H. Elliot calls ' 'the impudent and interested fraud'' of Muslim history. The writer of the present book will be happy to give them all the necessary 20 guidance and clues.

    The Taj Mahal Is A Temple Palace Laymen sometimes ask that if the Taj Mahal existed centuries before Mumtaz's death in , could not the radioactive carbon - 14 test be applied to determine its age?

    This is a question for experts to answer. If they have an infallible method they. But for any such test to be useful its margin of error must be precisely known. A five to ten years' margin would not matter very much but if it extends to several centuries the testa would be unsuitable to verify the accuracy of the conclusion drawn from historical evidence that the Taj Mahal is a Hindu building commandeered for use as a Muslim tomb.

    Our government should now address itself to the task of amending its tourist literature, histories, archaeological shibboleths and official dossiers on the Taj Mahal and other mediaeval buildings. And the entire citizenry should gear itself up to bring about a complete change in its historical outlook and perspective. N, Greater New Delhi - Kailas-1 P. Oak Dated February 1, Footnotes : Two amendments to the above introduction now called for are as under 1. Moreover Mahal is not at all a Muslim term.

    A carbon test has actually been carried out by a New York-based laboratory, around A. It proved that the timber doorway pre. PREFACE TO The Third Edition In presenting the third edition to the reader it gives me great satisfaction to record that the earlier universally held blind notion about Shahjahan's authorship of the Taj Mahal has been considerably eroded because of the evidence adduced in the preceding editions.

    This edition embodies three new chapters and some other major changes. In the earlier edition there were two chapters on Tavernier which we have trimmed and consolidated into a single chapter. Similarly, two separate chapters on the British and Maharashtriya encyclopaedias have also been trimmed and made up into one. Out of the three new chapters added two adduce new evidence while the third answers specific questions which readers of earlier itions have at times asked.

    I am grateful to Dr. Joshi, Department of Physics, Meerut University, Meerut, for supervising the publication of this edition. Earlier two editions bearing the same title were published in and respectively.

    Those were preceded by three other editions. Their worldwide sale channels made the book widely known through display in London book shops, five star hotels, railway stations and airports in many parts of the world. Then something happened and they dropped it like an hot brick.

    Perhaps the Congress party in power in India dropped dark hints through its secret service of dire consequences to the publishers. There were two possible reasons. One was the fear that if the disclosure of the Hindu origin of the Taj Mahal was not throttled the enblock Muslim vote, which enabled the Indian National Congress to rule India would be lost.

    The other factor was the pressure of the academic block comprising professors of history, architecture and archaeology, bureaucrats manning related departments, tourist officials and publicity media representatives who felt threatened that the un-verified sepulchral legend of the Taj Mahal that they had been sponsoring with great flourish and aplomb for over a century through photos, articles, books and exhibits would be exposed as sheer propagandistic and bombastic sham. Since I lacked enough financial resources and wide sale outlets Introduction 23 I had to resign myself to my book on the Taj Mahal remaining out of print though it had a unique sentinel-like role to perform of awakening and warning the world community of being bluffed and cheated by the concocted Shahjahan- Mumtaz legend of the Taj.

    In fact the research methodology expounded in tracing the Hindu origin of the Taj Mahal in this book deserves to be ranked as a valuable contribution in itself since it will help genuine, honest researchers rid history of a lot of chauvinistic sham and cant which clogs history because of long, alien rule and under alien-minded native rule. In a sincere friend, Mr.

    I am grateful to Mr. The present edition too has two additional chapters one indicates that years prior to Mogul Emperor Shahjahan's accession to the throne his own remote ancestor, Tamerlain had been so overcome by the beauty of the Taj Mahal that he wanted a similar building raised for himself in his native place. Like every other mediaeval Muslim source the Arab chronicler who records Tamerlain's longing for the attractive contours of the Taj Mahal also severely shuns mentioning the name Taj Mahal with Islamic disdain for a Vedic term.

    Incidentally that Islamic hatred for the term Taj Mahal and Tamerlain's longing for an identical edifice also prove that the Taj Mahal is not the 'deadly' Muslim monument that it is made out to be. The other added chapter concerns the Carbon - 14 dating of the Taj Mahal.

    Shanand Satyadeva from his trust. The belief that Mumtaz had on a romantic moonlit night entreated her much-shared spouse Shahjahan to bury her in a dreamland monument is one of the many fraudulent canards set afoot to bedeck the concocted Shahjahan - Mumtaz - Taj mahal tangled triangle.

    Entire Islamic history is full of such unverified, motivated myths which need to be critically examined and determinedly exposed. That in spite of the overwhelming available evidence produced in this book in chapter after chapter proving that the Taj Mahal alias Tejomahalaya temple palace complex has existed centuries before Shahjahan, generations of modern scholars have for the last years been blandly and blindly passing on the unverified Shahjahan Mumtaz myth with great gusto and glamour.

    That is a measure of the mediocrity, gullibility, academic dishonesty and intellectual inertia of modern scholarship. He had to be content with placing before the reader loose bits of inconsistent, anomalous and contradictory versions on every point. All aspects of the Shahjahan legend regarding the Introduction 11 Taj Mahal being suspect, it was but natural that attempts at compiling an authoritative account of the origin of the Taj Mahal should miserably fail.

    Nobody ever succeeded in or hoped to say the last convincing word on the origin of the Taj Mahal.

    Taj Mahal the True Story by P N Oak

    All previous attempts were bound to fail since they were all based on a wrong notion. Starting with wrong premises they could not arrive at the right conclusion. We are going to prove in the following pages that the Taj Mahal - meaning "the Very Crown Among Residences" - is an ancient Hindu building and not a Muslim tomb.

    We shall also show how all the loose bits of information - whether factual or concocted - dished out on the platter of the Shahjahan legend fall in place and fully support our research. Just as the solution to a mathematical problem may be tested for its accuracy by various methods, similarly, sound historical research provides a consistent and coherent story reconciling all apparent inconsistencies.

    In this book we have produced in photostat a passage from Shahjahan's court chronicle, the Badshahnama, which disarmingly admits that the Taj Mahal is a commandeered Hindu palace. We have also quoted the French merchant Tavernier, who visited India during Shahjahan's reign, to say that the cost of the scaffolding exceeded that of the entire work done regarding the mausoleum.

    This proves that all that Shahjahan had to do was engrave Koranic texts on the walls of a Hindu palace; that is why the cost of the scaffolding was much more than the value of the entire work done.

    We have cited the Encyclopaedia Britannica as stating that the Taj Mahal building-complex comprises stables and guest and guard rooms. We have quoted Mr. Nurul Hasan Siddiqui's book admitting, as the Badshahnama does, that a Hindu palace was commandeered to bury Muntaz in.

    We have cited Shahjahan's fifth-generation ancestor Babur to prove that he lived in what we call the "Taj Mahal" years before the death of the lady for whom the Taj is believed to have been built as a mausoleum. In addition to these proofs we have scotched the Shahjahan legend in every detail and cited other voluminous evidence proving conclusively that the Taj Mahal is an ancient Hindu building.

    This has happened time and again in human history.

    Galileo and Einstein, for example, shocked contemporary humanity out of their rusted dogma-shells. It was by sheer luck that we happened to find corroboration for our earlier finding on the Taj Mahal, in the Badshahnama, Mr.

    Siddiqui's book, Tavernier's travel account and Babur's Memoirs. But we wish to take this opportunity to alert posterity and our contemporaries interested in research and tell them that the proofs set out in our earlier book Taj Mahal was a Rajput Palace were more than enough to convince all those well versed in judicial procedure and logic that the Taj Mahal existed much before Mumtaz's death whose tomb it is supposed to be. Even if Mulla Abdul Hamid Lahori the author of the Badshahnama and others had prevaricated, the evidence we marshalled in our earlier book was enough to question their veracity and impel us to seek their motives.

    This is a lesson worth imbibing by the lay public and by researchers who have to wade through a mire of falsified and distorted accounts. We have in this book proved to the hilt that the Taj Mahal has been built to its minutest detail according to the ancient Hindu science of architecture of the Hindus, for the Hindus and by the Hindus.

    Now that we have firmly established it in this and in the earlier book, the topic should encourage further research to trace the history of the Taj Mahal prior to Mansingh's and Babur's possession of it until we get to the original Hindu builder. Jaipur royal records in the Bajasthan Archives at Bikaner or in the possession of the Jaipur ruling house might possess valuable clues.

    We have ourselves provided some clues in this book indicating that the Taj Mahal must have originated as Tejo Mahalaya completed in A. We had to face a veritable barrage of scoffs and sneers and other worse reactions when we first published our finding.

    But we are unshaken in our conviction. Those jeers and sneers came from all quarters. Particularly painful were those emanating from Introduction 13 eminent scholars of history. Most of them expressed nothing but vehement contempt either audibly or through various acts of commission and omission. The lay public looked on, dazed in disbelief, and looked up to history teachers and professors, as if they are oracles for cues whether to laud or condemn us.

    It is painful to note that scholars, who feel committed to the Shahjahan legend of the Taj Mahal, either by having authored books on the topic or guided post-graduate students along the beaten track, or by virtue of their bureaucratic and academic standing, showed a marked tendency to remain strait-jacketed in their beliefs.

    Obstructionist and obscurantist objections were flung at us. Many angrily asserted that we had not proved our case. But that was a most unscholarly attitude. A true devotion to academic research should have urged them to give a second thought to the matter. If they were right, the revision would have worked to their own advantage, because it would have bolstered up their own earlier belief by giving them an opportunity to fill up the holes which we had pointed out.

    If they were in the wrong their holding on to their earlier dogmas was unwarranted. They thus failed to be guided by the maxim that, "If you are in the right you can afford to keep your temper; if in the wrong you cannot afford to lose it.

    Trying to find fault with one who questions hackneyed beliefs is neither good ethics nor good scholarship. Finding fault with the method by which the discovery has been arrived at is worse. For all we know the method employed may be unorthodox or even occult. But what others should worry about is the end product or the result. They may later ask to be enlightened on the method used, but refusing to examine the conclusion by cavilling at the method is missing the wood for the trees.

    Luckily for us much water has flown down all the rivers since we first mooted our finding, and today our discovery is not looked upon, at least by some, as fantastic, quixotic, eccentric or just 14 The Taj Mahal Is A Temple Palace chauvinistic.

    The matter does not end with merely admitting the Taj Mahal to be a Hindu palace. That finding has a very far-reaching bearing on both Indian and world histories. The Taj Mahal has all along been wrongly believed to be the very flower of the mythical Indo-Saracenic architecture. Now that we have proved it to be an ancient Hindu building it should not be difficult for readers to regard with a little more respect and attention our finding explained in the book Some Blunders of Indian Historical Research that all mediaeval mosques and tombs in India are conquered and misused Hindu palaces and temples.

    The other corollary to our finding on the Taj Mahal is that the Indo-Saracenic theory of architecture is a figment of the imagination. Tt should be deleted forthwith from history books and textbooks of civil engineering and architecture. But the actual amendment needed is minor, namely, that what has been termed as "Indo-Saracenic architecture" should henceforth be understood to mean "ancient Indian architecture. A fourth corollary is that buildings in India and West Asia which have a resemblance to the Taj Mahal are products of Hindu architecture Shilpashastra.

    Just as in our own times we find Western architecture to be in vogue all over the world, similarly in ancient times it was only Hindu Vedic architecture which was prevalent all over the world no matter where a building was built and for what purpose.

    During our discussions with university teachers and book- reviewers we came across some curious objections to our thesis. Having read the earlier book they objected to our methodology as being argumentative, deductive and lawyer-like. This raises a very interesting point. Do they mean to say that deductive logic and lawyer-like arguments have no place in history research or being detrimental to arriving at correct conclusions Introduction 15 in historical research, should be altogether avoided?

    Their objection amounts to asserting that the conclusions arrived at by deductive logic or by the adjudicative process are all wrong. We then ask whether man did not arrive at his present state of knowledge in every branch of human inquiry with the help of his logical faculty?

    How else did he progress? Take the case of geography. Thousands of years before Man could send up spacecraft to photograph the earth did he not correctly conclude that the earth was round, by sheer logic? This should thoroughly expose the hollowness of the objection. Logic is justly called the science of sciences because it treats of reasoning which is the basis of all knowledge, from which history can claim no exemption.

    Moreover, we may remind such objectors that leading lights of historical methodology like Collingwood, Walsh, Renier, Langley, Seignbos, Berkley and Lord Sankey have precisely and repeatedly stressed that detective-type investigation, lawyer like argumentation and deductive reasoning are the very heart and soul of historical methodology, and that a true historian must look with suspicion even on longstanding and seemingly well-founded beliefs.

    To drive this point home we have included in this book a chapter on methodology. Those unable to extricate themselves from the rut of traditional thinking should know on reading that chapter that the reason why their finding on the origin of the Taj Mahal has been so wide off the truth is precisely because they have ignored or violated the guidelines for research laid down by the very scholars by whose names they have been swearing.

    Incidentally this leads to an ancillary conclusion, namely that Indian and world histories have been saddled with numerous wrong concepts precisely because teachers and researchers have all along been following wrong methodology. The fault, therefore, does not lie in our methodology. The boot is on the other leg. It was but natural that antediluvian attitudes should cause havoc in Indian and world history.

    The result is that today we find to our chagrin, after hundreds of years, that all that we have solicitously taught to generations of students about so-called Muslim architecture in India and their alleged benevolent rule, has to be abandoned.

    The need to re-examine the different versions of the Shahjahan 16 The Taj Mahal Is A Temple Palace legend of the Taj Mahal arises because the world deserves to be told the truth about this enchanting mansion, namely that the Taj Mahal was not born out of the death of Shahjahan 's consort Mumtaz. The ghosts of Shahjahan and Mumtaz have haunted the Taj Mahal story in the minds of the people for long years.

    It is high time that people's minds were exorcised. Another very important purpose we have in mind in unravelling the Taj Mahal-creation-riddle is to expose the unmethodical and slipshod manner in which many far-reaching concepts have been grafted on Indian history, and foisted on gullible, unsuspecting lay contemporaries and on posterity.

    Reconstructing the story of the origin of the Taj Mahal should serve as a practice-lesson in research methodology, exposing lapses committed so far and highlighting the principles and safeguards that need to be kept in view by history researchers and teachers. This book is also intended to impress on every reader that it is not the cenotaphs which should monopolize his or her attention.

How many of you agree with Professor Oak? Looking forward for your votes!!!!!!!!! Boy become emotional I received it several times but when I ask senders whether they have read the book, the answer is negative. But its a wonderful and eye-opening post and so thanks for posting.

    It is spreading awareness which is off course great! Today we all know that the Kohinoor diamond or the Peacock throne was originally in India, the same way we are opening our eyes to this HUGE secret. The Kutub Minar is also the same. It is built with pillars broken down from temples. A stone inscription at the site itself tells the same. Ive seen it recently. Oak born , full name Purushottam Nagesh Oak, is a Maharashtrian Brahmin historian associated with the Hindutva movement.

    His methods and his version of Indian history have been widely rejected.
