Monument of Love Taj Mahal


Taj Mahal is the symbol of love and makes us think about the power of love in our day to day life. If Emperor Shahjahan would have never loved his wife so deeply then he would have never thought of building this monument for us to keep in our everlasting memory. It is truly said that love always succeeds. The Taj Mahal tour makes it clear why it is different from all the other monuments in Agra, India and the world.

The Taj Mahal is famous and loved by everyone because of the story behind it. The love of Emperor Shah Jahan for his queen Mumtaz Mahal was amazing and is believed to be alive even today which has kept the monument alive even after 350 years after the construction.

The love of Shah Jahan was not only for his wife but was also for the city Agra. He had made the capital of the Mughal Kingdom in this city. He also built the Agra Fort from where he could see the Taj Mahal in the remembrance of his beloved companion. The love of the King cannot be explained and one would become speechless after seeing the monument of love.

What makes the Taj Mahal so beautiful? The beauty of the white marbled Taj Mahal is not just due to the pure marble used but it is also due to the love of Shah Jahan for his wife and his kingdom. He was a great Emperor who was a good husband and perfect warrior. He had a noble mind and knew how to protect his kingdom and his people. The city of Agra was decorated with gold and silver wherever possible and has been famous for riches in India. All these show that the heart of the great Emperor Shah Jahan was pure and dedicated towards his own kingdom and people. This makes the Taj Mahal more beautiful since his love for his queen and his kingdom was unlimited. The country India was called “Sone Ki Chidiya” (Golden Sparrow) at that time when this king has showered all his riches for making his kingdom beautiful.

What gives life and beauty to the Taj Mahal even today? As soon as you catch the pleasant white monument of love into your eyesight you will surely feel the love of Shah Jahan and his wife becoming alive in your mind. The perfect monument would have never been so alive and beautiful if the love of Shah Jahan was not alive even today. It seems that the love of the Emperor and the Empress is still protecting the monument even today. That’s why it is said that love never fails.

What kind of heart did Shah Jahan have? After seeing the beauty of the great Taj one would surely say that Shah Jahan the Emperor behind the Taj was generous in nature. He was a faithful person who kept the promise to his wife even after her death. He was a good and open hearted man who could express his thoughts by building such a huge memorable symbol of love. The Taj Mahal is known as “A Dream in Stone”, “A Dream in Marble”, “A Noble Tribute to The Grace of Indian Womanhood”, “Symbol of Love”, “The White Monument”, “The White Marble Monument” and “A Monument of Love”. All these explain the heart of the builder and the imaginer of the white beauty.

The perfection of the Mughal King: The story and description about the Taj Mahal is incomplete unless we discuss about the perfection and the symmetry of the luxury monument. Unless Shah Jahan was perfect and accurate in his heart, he would have not been able to build his queen’s expected monument which she had asked him before her death. The wisdom behind the building makes us understand the importance of love and wisdom in our lives. The dedication of the King towards the construction of the monument helped him build this monument with 20,000 workers and in 22 years. He did not give up because he loved his wife so much.

Life of the Mughal Emperor after the death of Mumtaz Mahal? When he lost his wife he became alone and grieved since he lost his companion. Even when he had other wives he couldn’t replace the love of Mumtaz Mahal. The eternal love cannot be replaced by anything which doesn’t come from the depth the heart. It is said that the Emperor became very weak and sick after the death of the woman of the Taj Mahal.

When did Shah Jahan see the Taj Mahal the last time? Surprisingly, the Emperor of Love was imprisoned by his own son Aurangazeb. Aurangazeb meaning “Ornament of the Throne” was the third son of Shah Jahan and Mumtaz Mahal. This surprises us and puts the question in our mind thinking about the wickedness of the son of these great lovers. Shah Jahan’s elder daughter Jahan Ara was with him at the last moment and she always helped her father to see the glimpse of the Monument built by him.

Love Always Succeeds: The love of Shah Jahan and Mumtaz Mahal has always succeeded. This is the message given by the Monument of Love to us that even today the Taj Mahal stands first in the list of the Seven Wonders of the World and is liked by millions of people all over the world. The son Aurangazeb at the deathbed has accepted his mistakes and had told his followers to follow his father and grandfather instead of following his principles. Thus the love of the Emperor and the Empress is still alive and can be seen with our eyes entering our hearts forever. Finally, when Shah Jahan was also buried next to his wife’s tomb the Taj Mahal has become the Monument of the lovers.
