What is hidden in the secret chambers of Taj Mahal?As on date, Taj Mahal is the most famous historical monument of India. Despite the existence of many more grand architectural marvels, almost a crore people visit Taj Mahal every year, both from India and from foreign countries. Some historians say that Taj Mahal had originally been a fort/temple, which was later converted to a tomb.
Taj Mahal, like any other historic fort, has many secret passages and rooms. There are many rooms in the fort or tomb. The total number of such closed rooms and passages is 1089 (one thousand and eighty-nine)! These are kept closed since the time of Shah Jahan. These doorways have been sealed with brick and lime. There are some beliefs about these hidden doors in Taj Mahal which indicate towards the history of Taj Mahal. Some historians believe that these closed rooms or passages contain the original history of Taj Mahal.
Can't the Government and ASI take steps to open these closed rooms and passages and throw lights on the origin of Taj? Don't the Indian citizens deserve this?
