actually I have neverbeen able to think of taj mahal as anything beyond a mausoleum./..a tomb..

Built out of love or not, a tomb is a tomb...


Anyway it is a beautiful structure...

Regardless of the cruel side of Shahzhaan, I think we shpuld still keep it as a symbol of love and also for Indian Economy, it attracts lots of foreigners and brings MULLA to our country.

Is the Taj Mahal worth it's fame today or should it be plowed to the ground?

 Who are we to decide what happened in the history when we can't even protect the present? Even if the myth about cutting artist's limbs were true, how will plowing TM to the ground help them? Ouch 

 The world would indeed be FLAT if we started bull dozing TM and all monuments and bldgs.

Great post Vijay.
The standard cheecky answer to the above taunt of course is: "Arre Darling, ek baar tu mar ke to dekh! than see what I can do for you." Wink

Taj Mahal is unique in itself. It is an evidence that how the emotions and feelings are important to human life. Taj Mahal is an example of devotion and faith. The story of Taj Mahal is a love story not found in papers but stands in the structural form. The story of Taj Mahal is rare.

LOL Sowmyaa & badal gaya.. I was wondering if the thread had lost its way in the arms of Iejaz khan or whoever that was. You brought it back :)

Aparna,
I think destruction of Tajmahal will not exactly do any justice to those artists who sacrificed everything making Tajmahal.  In fact, to me, it is more than a shehenshah's dead wife's tomb! 
1)  who knows Shahjahaan-Mumtaz/TM related love/cruelty stories have an iota of truth?
2)  As everyone said earlier, there is a great deal of historic, political, economic sensibility and interest in keeping it intact and better preserved on the contrary to destroying it.
3) If it hurts to think about the artists, one can regard it as a memorial of the artists and their families who suffered immensely
4) A thing of beauty (that does not join a pageant as a ticket to bollywood) sho be revered / let alone, but not destroyed.
