Photographic Evidence – Taj Mahal a Vedic Temple













Was the Taj Mahal a Vedic Temple?

The Photographic Evidence

This presents photographs (listed below) that show the Vedic influence found in such buildings as the Taj Mahal, Red Fort, and other structures in India. It also presents photos of drawings and art that have been discovered from other parts of the world, such as Arabia, Egypt, Greece and Italy, that show a definite Vedic influence. No matter whether you accept all of this or not, it nonetheless makes for an extremely fascinating and interesting story. Take a look and decide for yourself what you think. Also, let other people know about these, or print and use them for your own displays in your temple, office or home.  Or exhibit the slide show for others to see.

We have all heard how the Taj Mahal, which is considered one of the great wonders of the world, was built as the preeminent expression of a man’s love for a wife. That it was built by emperor Shah Jahan in commemoration of his wife Mumtaz. However, in our continuous effort to get to the truth, we have recently acquired some very important documents and information. There is evidence that the Taj Mahal was never built by Shah Jahan. Some say the Taj Mahal pre-dates Shah Jahan by several centuries and was originally built as a Hindu or Vedic temple/palace complex. Shah Jahan merely acquired it from its previous owner, the Hindu King Jai Singh.  In fact, as recently as 1910, the Encyclopedia Brittanica also said that it was a pre-existing building before Shah Jahan.

The Question of the Taj Mahal













 

 

 

The Question of the Taj Mahal

By P. S. Bhat and A. L. Athawale

(from the Itihas Patrika, Vol. 5, pp 98-111, 1985)

ABSTRACT

This paper deals with the Taj Mahal, the magnificent marble edifice on the banks of the river Jamuna, in the southern part of Agra city. It is generally believed by historians and laymen alike that the building was erected as a mausoleum by the 5th generation Mogul Emperor Shah Jahan in the memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal, and that the period of its construction was 1631-53 AD.

The basis of these claims has been questioned by Shri P. N. Oak in his book “The Taj Mahal is a Temple Palace.” The substance of Shri Oak’s thesis is that the edifice was originally built as a temple in the 12th century AD, and was subsequently used as a palace by the alien aggressors. The building again fell into the hands of the Rajput kings during the period of Humayun, and was put to use as a palace by Raja Man Singh of Jaipur. And that it was finally commandeered by Shah Jahan from Raja Jai Singh of Jaipur, and was converted into a mausoleum.

The controversy assumes importance as it questions some of the basic premises of mediaeval Indian archeology. This paper attempts to place in perspective some of the pertinent questions that arise on the subject.

The Taj Mahal Was Origianlly a Shiva Temple – 108 Proofs













Taj Mahal or Tejo-Mahalaya

The Taj Mahal Was Origianlly a Shiva Temple – 108 Proofs

The Muslims started their rule over India in 712 A.D. with the invasion of Mohammed Qasem. During their rule they looted and destroyed hundreds of thousands of Hindu temples. Aurangzeb himself destroyed 10,000 Hindu temples during his reign! Some of the larger temples were converted into mosques or other Islamic structures. Ram Janmbhoomi (at Ayodhya) and Krishna Temple (at Mathura) are just two examples. Many others exist!

The most evident of such structures is the Taj Mahal–a structure supposedly devoted to carnal love by the “great” Moghul king Shah Jahan to his favorite wife Mumtaz Mahal. Please keep in my mind that this is the same Shah Jahan who had a harem of 5,000 women and the same Shah Jahan who had an incestuous relationship with his daughter justifying it by saying, ‘a gardener has every right to taste the fruit he has planted’! Is such a person even capable of imagining such a wondrous structure as the Taj Mahal let alone be the architect of it?

The answer is no. It cannot be. And it isn’t as has been proven. The Taj Mahal is as much an Islamic structure as is mathematics a Muslim discovery! The famous historian Shri P.N. Oak has proven that Taj Mahal is actually Tejo Mahalaya– a Shiva temple-palace. His work was published in 1965 in the book, Taj Mahal – The True Story. However, we have not heard much about it because it was banned by the corrupt and power crazed Congress government of Bharat who did not want to alienate their precious vote bank-the Muslims.

Television – A poem by Ronald dhal













Television – A poem by Ronald dhal

The most important thing we’ve learned,
So far as children are concerned,
Is never, NEVER, NEVER let
Them near your television set —
Or better still, just don’t install
The idiotic thing at all.
In almost every house we’ve been,
We’ve watched them gaping at the screen.
They loll and slop and lounge about,
And stare until their eyes pop out.
(Last week in someone’s place we saw
A dozen eyeballs on the floor.)
They sit and stare and stare and sit
Until they’re hypnotised by it,
Until they’re absolutely drunk
With all that shocking ghastly junk.

Katie’s awesome tattoo!













Today I was at a university distributing Srila Prabhupada’s wonderful transcendental books doing my little part to help others to realize that they are not the body but an eternal soul. Then I happened to meet Katie (The young lady in the above picture) who after looking at the books enthusiastically told me “Yeah, I already have all those books”. She then, with a big smile, explained to me that her boyfriend had already got books from me over a year ago, and they have been reading them together ever since.

So we started talking and I noticed on her chest some tattooed words that where half covered by her shirt and I asked her what her tattoo says. She told me it says

“You do not have a soul, you are a soul, you have a body”
