Taj Mahal tour 'reveals emperor's love'

Article content

8 March 2010

Holidays to India that involve a walking tour around the Taj Mahal will reveal the love that the emperor had not only for the famed Mumtaz Mahal - for whom he built the palace - but also for his other wives.

According to Arjun Kumar of the Economic Times, there can be found on the outskirts of the compound four separate tombs, each of which is located at different corners of the boundary wall.

Three of the graves - which have been placed at the same height as the partition and are above eye level - belong to the other wives of Shahjahan, with those thought to be a monument to Akbarabadi Begum and Fatehpuri Begum being identical and set within the complex walls.

People planning trips to Agra might like to coincide their vacations with the Taj Mahotsav, a ten-day festival that demonstrates India's folk music, classical dance and arts and crafts.
