New Delhi: Taj Mahal is counted among the wonders of the world, thanks to its impeccable beauty and eye-striking architecture. The marvellous marble mausoleum stands proudly at the banks of Yamuna River in the Agra city.
But unfortunately, the beautiful monument recently was at the centre of a heated controversy.
A declaratory suit was filed in an Agra court that Taj Mahal be declared a Hindu temple with right to worship for Hindus. Yesterday, the government gave a written reply to the suit saying it has not found any evidence that the Taj Mahal in Agra was a Hindu temple.
It sparked off a debate on Twitter with people sharing their views on the issue. Amid this process, the official account of Taj Mahal garnered our attention as it has some interesting details.
It is worth a mention that the monument has recently got a Twitter handle.
The only politician it follows is Uttar Pradesh CM and his office is doing. Besides, Yadav the handle is not interested in even Prime Minister or President of India.
But the handle has some interest in a Russian billionaire and an unknown people. It has also interest in football, especially in Indian Super Delhi Dynamos FC and its Manager famous footballer Roberto Carlos.
