The Taj Mahal, an architectural masterpiece located in the city of Agra, has always mesmerized its visitors with its beauty and grandeur.
Recently, an AI artist named Jyo John Mulloor created a series of images showcasing the construction of the monument. These images, generated by Midjourney’s AI technology, depict the Taj Mahal being built by workers using iron rods, culminating in the finished look of the monument.
Along with the images, Mulloor has also shared a permission letter from Mughal emperor Shah Jahan, the founder of the Taj Mahal. The letter, written in English, expresses Shah Jahan’s pleasure in sending the images to Mulloor and describes the labor of love that went into the construction of the monument, which took over two decades to complete. It also elaborates on the history of the construction of the Taj Mahal, which was built as a tribute to Shah Jahan’s beloved wife Mumtaz.
Since being shared on social media platforms, these images and the permission letter have gone viral, garnering over 1.2 lakh likes. Users have been awed by the rare glimpse into the past, with one commenting “Waah Taj! Waah, Jyo!” and another describing it as “amazing”.
