Symbolism (Print)

Irfan Shaikh

The dome of the Taj Mahal has the same function as that of the Sacred Heart, in Paris, for example, It is a question of materializing the elevation of the soul towards the heavens. Every religion having the belief of the rising of the soul to a higher God has a similar representation of this ascent: All that points to the sky, and even more so if it is a conical form and a good representation. Thus the church steeples, the mosque minarets have this symbolic notion.

The Taj Mahal has several: The elevation of the soul of Mumtaz Mahal is ensured by the dome, but also by the 4 minarets that accompany it, and more generally by the Chameli Frash, it is the name given to the marble terrace on which the mausoleum stands. Indeed, when we look at the mausoleum of the gardens it seems high and pointing to the sky, we really feel that it rises in the air. This is all the symbolism that the workers of the Taj Mahal wanted.
