That's true evidence that this was a Hindu Palace.
Shah Jehan deemed that no one else should ever copy the masterpice, so he had the master craftsmans hands cut off.

This is actually a Hindu Temple Built for Lord Shiva. Actual Name is Tej Mahalaya.

the beautiful taj mahal! built by the Persian Muslim Mughal Emperor, Shah Jahan for his dead wife, Mumtaz Mahal. (Mumtaz Mahal means "beloved ornament of the palace" in Persian. Her real name was Arjumand Banu Begum). The whole building and grounds were meant to be a lifesize depiction of Islamic "Paradise", or Heaven. "Paradise" is a Farsi word meaning, "walled garden". A Little known legend is that Mumtaz is not actually buried in the mausoleum at all but the Shah became so occupied with building his masterpiece that the small wooden shrine which held her body was thrown out on the trash pile & burnt!
In 2002 the Indian Supreme Court overruled Purushottam Nagesh Oak's (P.N. Oak) claim that the building was originally a Hindu temple built before the Persian Islamic invasion of Northern India. In most academic circles P.N. Oak is regarded as a crackpot. He also claims that Christianity and Islam are derived from Hinduism, which is so far from historical truth as to be laughable! Sorry Properity88!

Actually all the evidence saying this is a Muslim temple are miss leading. The true story of this magnificent building is it was a Hindu Temple devoted to the great Lord Shiva. There is alot of evidence which is not told. There is a link which details and talks about evidence that this was a Hindu palace. If you type The Tajmahal is Tejomahalay A Hindu Temple.
It will show evidence that this was a Hindu Palace.
