“Tip, tip…” It dropped again. People thought, there was some leakage from the tomb. Scientists studied every possible aspect of it, yet, failed to discover the fact.  Rabindranath Tagore had said, “One Tear Drop… Upon the cheek of time”! And, rumors have it that its the only sign of Mumtaz’s grief at TAJ-MAHAL! Once a year during rainy season it falls on her cenotaph... Nobody till date knows the “HIDDEN-TRUTH” behind this fact!!

  3. Am not sure abt the reason....Nor about the rationality behind the occurence, but
    I read about an archaeological reason for this....
    Source : Yojana(a monthly magazine by Govt of India) in which archaeological survey of india cited some architectural reason for this occurrence.
    Similarly, there are few more rare nuances of Taj mahal. Some of them are real and some are mere speculations.
