The issue of changing the name of the land is once again under consideration. Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, who has been famous for changing the word on social media, said that the Mughal Museum under construction in Agra would be built in the name of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.
He said the UP government was pushing nationalist ideas. It is essential to support the principles of democracy by discarding the icons of the culture of slavery. He noted that Mughal might not be our heroes. Shivaji Maharaj is a hero of ours.
The Chief Minister also ordered that Chhatrapati Shivaji’s age be maintained in this museum. With this move, the critics began to challenge questions like what happens by changing the word. The historian Rajkishore Raje proposed to change the name of the Mughal Museum.
After that, the tourism department recommended half a dozen names to the administration. The city of Agra was the capital of the Moghul Empire from 1500 56 to 1600 48 by Alexander Lodi. Later, Agra was ruled by Marathas. It came under the British Rule after them. It is said that the memories of Shivaji are connected to several locations in the city.
The statue of Shivaji Maharaj is situated outside the Agra Fort. For several years, Chhatrapati Shivaji, who laid the base of the Maratha Dynasty in western India, battled the Mughal Empire of Aurangzeb. Troubled by the power of Shivaji, Aurangzeb decided to make a pact with him.
He was called to Agra for this. Historians state that Shivaji and his eldest son Sambhaji came to Agra on March 16, 1666. If the Mughal emperor Aurangzeb had not approved, Shivaji had declined the position of head of the mind. He stayed at the house of Rama Singh, the son of Raja Jai Singh.
Some historians say that by imprisoning Shivaji in the Agra Fort, Aurangzeb has actively guarded five thousand troops. Aurangzeb’s courtier Ghazi Khan, in his book Initially, describes Shivaji living in a house outside the town near the Raja-like palace.
Elliot and Dyson also described this in the book History of India. According to the documents, Shivaji made excuses for being sick in court. Then he continued to give fruit baskets to the charity. On August 13, 1666, he vanished by sitting in a basket of fruit.
His cousin Hira Ji was sitting on a mattress instead of Shivaji. As a result, the security forces of the fort were in a mess, and Aurangzeb kept on rubbing his palms. It is said that by boat in the Yamuna, Shivaji had entered the temple of the Tajganj Crematorium and had been hidden for a few days.
They’re told to stop at the Mahadev Temple on Station Lane. Then he stood in a circle of saints and marched towards Mathura. Aurangzeb, guy. Shivaji was never arrested despite this.
