    Black Taj Mahal (any ideas)

    I was just talking to one of my friend who told me about the black taj mahal thing which doesn't exist but people tell you to visit it, is it for real or what and whats the real story behind black taj mahal.

    Black Taj mahal was started by Shah jahan on the other side of the river from Taj mahal and was supposed to look exactly like the Taj mahal that we see now but black in color, may be granite or something I am not sure. Shah Jahan was put under house arrest by his own son before he could build this black one so its just the foundation that we can see now.
    If you have a good guide who can make it sound interesting then good but there isint much to see on the other side. I went there once and didint find it very interesting.

    Yeh you might aswell have a look as you gonna be there any way and it only takes a 15 mins auto rickshaw ride to get to the other side of the river.

    It means there is no real black Taj Mahal there, I checked some pics on google and they looked totally fake. I am not sure now if I will go there to see just foundations.
