Sanskrit Inscription, Carbon 14 Test, Koranic Patches Prove Taj Mahal as Shiva Temple

Shiva Temple

The controversy surrounding Taj Mahal isn’t yet solved though there have been numerous proofs to justify that it was a Hindu structure, or to be specific a Shiva temple. Evidences have been hidden by the so called modern historians who followed their masters for petty positions and power. Even documents left behind by the Mughals such as Badshahnama (by Abdul Hamid Lahori, a traveller and historian during the period of Shah Jahan who later became his court historian) validate this point. Many of their own historians praised their own conquests and murders of innocent Hindus!


Shri P.N. Oak, an ex-soldier of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s INA, had presented many evidences which was rejected by so called historians as they could not allow such truth to be published.


Besides the many evidences, the following data suggests that Taj Mahal is a Hindu structure, a Shiva temple:


Sanskrit Inscription


A Sanskrit inscription supports the claim that the Taj Mahal was originally a Shiva temple. Wrongly termed as the Bateshwar inscription (currently preserved on the top floor of the Lucknow museum), it refers to the raising of a “crystal white Shiva temple so alluring that Lord Shiva once enshrined in it decided never to return to Mount Kailash, his usual abode”.


That inscription dated 1155 A.D. was removed from the Taj Mahal garden at Shah Jahan’s orders. Historians and archaeologists have blundered in terming the inscription as Bateshwar inscription when the record doesn’t say that it was found by Bateshwar. It ought, in fact, to be called The Tejo Mahalaya inscription because it was originally installed in the Taj garden before it was uprooted and cast away at Shah Jahan’s command.


A clue to the tampering by Shah Jahan is found on pages 216-217, vol. 4, of Archaeological Survey of India Reports (published 1874) stating that a “great square black ballistic pillar which, with the base and capital of another pillar….now in the grounds of Agra, …it is well known, once stood in the garden of Taj Mahal”.


Carbon 14 Test


A wooden piece from the riverside doorway of the Taj subjected to the carbon 14 test by an American Laboratory and initiated by Professors at Pratt School of Architecture, New York, has revealed that door to be 300 years older than Shah Jahan. The doors of the Taj, broken open by Muslim invaders repeatedly from the 11th century onwards, had to be replaced from time to time. The Taj edifice is much more older. It belongs to 1155 A.D, i.e., almost 500 years anterior to Shah Jahan.


Koranic Patches


The Taj Mahal is scrawled over with 14 chapters of the Koran but nowhere is there even the slightest or the remotest allusion of Islamic overwriting to Shah Jahan’s authorship of the Taj. Had Shah Jahan been the builder he would have said so in so many words before beginning to quote Koran.


That Shah Jahan, far from building the marble Taj, only disfigured it with black lettering is mentioned by the inscriber Amanat Khan Shirazi himself in an inscription on the building. A close scrutiny of the Koranic lettering reveals that they are grafts patched up with bits of variegated stone on an ancient Shiva temple.
