Those monuments were ALL palaces, forts and darbars of the valiant Kshatriya kings of India!!! Many of those monuments were converted to mausoleums, to bury the debaucherous Muslim 'kings', so that the Indians would not reoccupy them.

How come the Udaipur palace and other palaces in Jaipur, Hava Mahal, etc. etc. still have the same architectural style of ornate curved arches as the Taj Mahal (Raj Mahal)???

They were all constructed by the INDIAN RAJPUT KINGS. Even the Rajastan University in Jaipur has honored their Rajput architects, with the same ancient architectural design of ornate curved arches. Instead of marble, they are pink-stone buildings at the university, in the Pink City of India.

What about the palaces in Mysore? They bear the same architectural style, much earlier than that of the Muslims, who invaded south India.

I totally agree with you that when India recognized Israel and started joint ventures with the Jews (Yehudis, as they are called by the Indians refers to the Judeans). Judea MUST NOT be surrendered to the Arab Muslims.
