Shocked? Even I was shocked when I heard about it. But then when I researched about it, there was another interesting story behind the story that I heard. The story of the missing Taj Mahal reflects the fact that states that Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, who built the Taj Mahal for his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal, wanted to build another Taj Mahal which would be the Black Taj Mahal for himself. He actually never had any plans for getting buried with her wife right in the middle of the White Taj Mahal after it was erected.

The extremely heavy hard work of more than 20,000 craftsmen and the artisans, in the time period of 20 years made Shah Jahan, the owner of the Taj Mahal, himself mesmerized with the beauty that was created. Erected with the pure white Marble, Taj Mahal looked extremely stunning, right as the way it looks today or maybe more than that.

Now since Taj Mahal was the best creation of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, it fascinated him to create another Taj Mahal right in the opposite of the Taj Mahal. But this Taj Mahal would be in Black Color. Hence, instead of white marble, the Black Marble would be used to create another Taj Mahal, eventually the Black Taj Mahal.
