Images of Taj Mahal Rooms: ASI releases photos of 22 Taj Mahal Underground Rooms- See What’s Inside!

Photos of the ASI Taj Mahal Room: In a bid to defuse the uproar over the Taj Mahal’s 22 underground rooms, ASI has released images showing conservation and restoration work.

The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has revealed images of the Taj Mahal’s 22 basement rooms in an attempt to put an end to the debate. These photographs depict repair work in progress in these rooms.

The photographs are available for public viewing on the ASI website as part of the January 2022 newsletter, according to Agra ASI chief R K Patel.

The damaged and decomposed lime plaster was removed and replaced by laying lime plaster and traditional lime processing before application in the 22 basement rooms of Taj Mahal, according to ASI’s January 2022 newsletter.

The newsletter also noted that the preservation of monuments is ASI’s primary responsibility and that they carry out their duties on a regular basis, regardless of whether they are closed or available to the public. It stated that from December 2021 to March 2022, conservation work was carried out in Taj Mahal’s underground cells, which are otherwise inaccessible to the general public, and that the images are now in the public domain.

Controversy about the Taj Mahal’s 22 rooms

The Taj Mahal’s 22 underground rooms have been in the news recently, thanks to a plea filed on May 4 in the Allahabad high court’s Lucknow bench by Rajneesh Singh, who asked the court to order the ASI to open the rooms to see if there are any Hindu idols buried there.

The petitioner had asked the state government to form a committee to inspect the 20 rooms for any evidence of Hindu idols or scriptures. Several Hindutva groups allege that the Taj Mahal is actually a historical Shiva Temple known as Tejo Mahalaya, according to the petitioner.

On May 12, the Allahabad High Court’s Lucknow bench dismissed the case and blasted the petitioner, adding, “What verdict do you want us to make? Who constructed the Taj Mahal? Do not delve into historical details. Only when rights have been violated can a Mandamus be issued. Which of your rights have been violated?”

Justices DK Upadhyay and Subhash Vidyarthi of the division bench urged the petitioner not to create a mockery of the PIL system, saying, “We are not here to select which topic should be explored. This case is no longer in court, and historians should handle it.”
