On whose land was the Taj Mahal built? Did they buy it? – Balita18 Telugu
Everyone knows about the Taj Mahal, one of the wonders of the world in Agra, Uttar Pradesh. It was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in the 17th century. This magnificent building is one of the wonders of the world. Tourists visit Agra regularly to see this marble structure. The Taj Mahal was included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1983. It took about 22 years to build the Taj Mahal. Tourists from all over the world are attracted to it because of its beauty. But from time to time, there are disputes about its land ownership rights.
Some say that this land belongs to the Amer community which was bought by Shah Jahan.. Meanwhile, the royal family of Jaipur claims that the land of Taj Mahal belongs to their ancestors and was forcibly taken by the Mughal Emperor.
According to the Archaeological Survey of India… The land of the Taj Mahal is owned by the Kachwahas of Amer, Rajasthan. Shah Jahan bought the Taj Mahal from the Kachwahas to build it. In return the Mughal emperor gave four havelis to the Kachwahs. But not much information about the buildings is given as compensation. However, the court historian Hamid Lahouri, in his works like Badshanama and Farman, mentions the purchase of land from the Kachwahas for the Taj Mahal. The Taj Mahal covers an area of about 60 bighas.

On the other hand, political leader Subramanya Swamy criticized the Taj Mahal land dispute. It’s expensive. He said that Shah Jahan forced the kings and emperors of Jaipur to sell the land where the Taj Mahal was located. Not only that, but he was given some villages as compensation, but their value was much less than the Taj Mahal land. On the other hand, there was a temple in the place where the Taj Mahal is located.

On the other hand, Diya Kumari, a member of the royal family of Jaipur, claimed that the Taj Mahal in Agra was built in 2022 on land belonging to the royal family of Jaipur. He alleged that Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan forcibly occupied the land belonging to the royal family of Jaipur. He said he will also provide the documents if the court orders. All documents related to land ownership are in the Poti Khana which belongs to the royal family. The closed rooms of the Taj Mahal must be opened and the truth must come out. But he said that there is no intention to destroy the Taj Mahal. He just wanted the truth to come out.
What was the first name of the Taj Mahal building?
When buried in a tomb, Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan named this beautiful white marble building …Rauja e Munawwara. But after some time its name was changed to Taj Mahal. At that time, Rs. 3.2 crores were spent on its production. 28 types of stones are used in it. More than 20,000 workers worked day and night to build the Taj Mahal. Shah Jahan placed an urn more than 30 feet high made of 40 thousand tolas of gold on top of it. This kalash was made of gold until 1800, but now it is made of bronze.
