The Fifteen Properties of Christopher Alexander. The description of the Taj Mahal and its beautifying elements are described in short and simple sentences. The Black Taj is as popular as the Taj Mahal itself. It cannot remain unnoticed because Shah Jahans own mausoleum is missing and a proper investigation of this subject seems important. In the absence of any exclusive dedicated literary work on the Black Taj, the story has swung between reality and myth. However, a majority of the people believe that the idea of constructing the Black Taj Mahal for Shah Jahans own mortal remains was real, but the existing evidence supporting the theory is unorganized, so a lot of confusion prevails around it.The story of the Black Taj Mahal exists parallel to the Taj Mahal and describes how Shah Jahan wanted to build another identical mausoleum on the opposite bank of the river Yamuna, but with black marble. Mahtab Bagh was the suggested site of the said Black Taj Mahal which is situated on the opposite bank of the river in symmetry (in a straight line) with the Taj Mahal.Part I The Taj Mahal.Part II The Black Taj Mahal.Part III Unending Romance.Part IV Genealogy of the Mughal Dynasty.
