Taj Mahal, built by a Mughal emperor Shah Jahan is the most visited tourist place in India. However, recently a group of Hindu lawyers has filed a lawsuit that the Taj Mahal was a Hindu temple for worship.

The group of lawyers additionally demanded that the ownership of the Taj Mahal is transferred onto a Hindu and that the Muslim Indians should be restricted or banned from offering their prayers at the Taj Mahal.

Taj Mahal was a Hindu TempleThe government of India has clearly rejected all of the claims put forward by the group of Hindu lawyers stating that the government has not found any sort of evidence that will justify the claims of the lawyers.

The Archaeological Survey of India has also earlier backed up the government’s statement that they did not find any sort of evidence that indicated that the Mughal Monument built in the 17th century was ever a Shiva temple.

Sharma added that the government of India is completely aware of the lawsuit and had observed that there has been no effect on the tourism to the Taj Mahal, due to this controversy.
