The world of romance and eternal love personified in the epic love story of the emperor Shah Jahan and his beloved Mumtaz Mahal, is woven into the mesmerizing Dance-Drama, Mohabbat The Taj.
Set in the 16th century, the dance-drama portrays the lavish lifestyle of the Mughal era. The highlight of the show is a replica of the Taj Mahal in Makrana marble weighing 8,500 kg with inlay work which presents various moods and shades, very similar to the original Taj Mahal. Embellished costumes and the extravagant stage settings make for an interesting portrayal of the 16th century and allows one to see Mughal grandeur coming alive.
A Visual Treat
The show is a visual feast for the eyes with its ace enactment of the grandeur and splendid lifestyles of the mughal period. The most overwhelming part of this extravaganza is the climax. The world's biggest replica of the Taj Mahal emerges slowly on a lotus-shaped platform lifted by a hydraulic lift. Truly, a majestic delight.
The replica of the Taj has been done in pure Makrana marble and is embellished with the finest of details as in the original. The original Taj Mahal took the patience of 17 years and the sheer hardwork of 20, 000 craftsmen and labourers. No wonder its replica took seven years of relentless craftsmanship by 28 artisans and designers to bring alive the magic of the Taj.
The total cost of the original Taj worked out to be Rupees 4 crore, 18 lacs, 48 thousand, 426 annas and 7 pies. The mausoleum stands in the middle of the square white marble plinth called chakka which measures 328 feet, 3 inches and is 19 feet in height from the Chameli Farsh. The tapering minarets which measure 132 feet in height at an average are three-storeyed each separated by a balcony.
Witness the spectacular live show by performing artisans depicting the magic of that era in present time. Through interesting and innovative song and drama performances given by 60 artists.
