From Quiz From Salt to Steel

Answer: Taj Mahal

The Taj Mahal hotel is located next to the Gateway of India and overlooks the Arabian Sea. Contrary to popular perception, it was designed by an Indian architect Raosaheb Sitaram Khanderao Vaidya. The well known English architect, WA Chambers, took over only after the former's death and didn't make any major changes to the original plans. There are several myths surrounding its construction. A popular one states that Jamsetji Tata built it after being denied entry to a 'whites only' hotel located nearby. This has since been debunked by historians. It is now believed that Tata built the hotel to attract people to the city as a plague threatened to drive them away. Another myth states that the hotel was mistakenly built facing the wrong side and when the English architect saw the error while entering the city by boat, he jumped off the ship and committed suicide. This one has been proved to be untrue as well. The Indian Hotels Company, the hospitality wing of the group, now owns and operates many hotels across the world.
