L’image du jour… le Taj Mahal !

Le Taj Mahal

Le Taj Mahal

Aujourd’hui « l’image du jour » ne pouvait être que… le Taj Mahal, symbole de l’Amour Éternel.  Ce bâtiment, lumineux emblème de l’Inde, est la preuve de l’amour fou que portait l’empereur moghol Shah Jahan à sa femme Mumtaz Mahal. 

Le Taj, l’édifice le plus romantique et le plus photographié du monde, reste le plus parfait jamais construit par l’homme. Résultat d’un mélange unique de passion et d’exubérance architectural, bien plus qu’un magnifique mausolée de marbre blanc, le Taj Mahal est le témoignage d’amour d’un homme à son épouse disparue. Le symbole d’une histoire d’amour qui défie le temps.

Une réflexion sur “L’image du jour… le Taj Mahal !

  1. Did Shah Jahan really love Mumtaz?
    One of my friends had messaged me the following which questioned the authenticity of Shah Jahan’s love for Mumtaz.

    We know Taj Mahal as a symbol of Love. But the other lesser known facts:
    1. Mumtaz was Shajahan’s 4th wife out of his 7 wives.
    2. Shahjahan killed Mumtaz’s husband to marry her.
    3. Mumtaz died in her 14th delivery.
    4. He then married her sister.
    Question arises, where the hell is the Love?

    Shah Jahan was engaged to Mumtaz for 4 years, a very long period of waiting in Muslim tradition and in the meanwhile married a Rajput Princess.

    Several European chroniclers noted this. Niccolao Manucci wrote that “it would seem as if the only thing Shahjahan cared for was the search for women to serve his pleasure” and “for this end he established a fair at his court. No one was allowed to enter except women of all ranks that is to say, great and small, rich and poor, but all beautiful”. When he was detained in the Agra Fort, Aurangzeb permitted him to retain “the whole of his female establishment, including the singing and dancing women.” Manucci notes that Shah Jahan didn’t lose his “weakness for the flesh” even when he had grown very old,. Shah Jahan also had an affair with Farzana Begum, Mumtaz Mahal’s sister. It was said that Farzana Begum’s son was the son of Shah Jahan, and Manucci wrote, “as for myself, I have no doubt about it, for he was very like Prince Dara..
