What secrets do the Taj Mahal's locked rooms hold?

Do the chambers of one of the world's greatest monuments hold any secrets?

Judges belonging to a high court in India don't think so. On Thursday, they dismissed a petition filed by a member of India's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) demanding the opening of doors of more than 20 "permanently locked rooms" in the Taj Mahal to find out the "real history of the monument".

More pointedly, Rajneesh Singh told the court he wanted to check out "claims by historians and worshippers" that the rooms housed a shrine to Shiva, the Hindu god.

The Taj Mahal is a 17th Century riverfront mausoleum in Agra city which was built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his queen Mumtaz who died while giving birth to their 14th child. The stunning monument - built with brick, red sandstone and white marble and famed for its intricate lattice work - is one of India's biggest tourist attractions.

But accepted history doesn't impress Mr Singh. "We all should know what's there behind these rooms," he implored the court.

They contain Jimmy Hoffa and the cursed painting of Keanu Reeves that keeps him young.
