Is There a Third Set of Graves in Taj

Is there a third set of graves in Taj? This "third graves set In Taj Mahal" myth is related to a practice that has been traditionally followed in the cases of tombs. As per the tradition, a third and the real set of graves was always kept in the tombs, along with the representative ones. This has been followed in the tomb of Akbar and the tombs of Itmad-ud-Dauhlah and Chini-ka-Rauza, etc. As per the legend of the third graves set In Taj, there should be a third set in this monument also.

It is believed that these graves must be somewhere inside the underground vaults of the Taj Mahal. However, the doors on the extreme points of the basement chambers in Taj, which should have housed this third set of graves, have been permanently blocked. Thus, it can never be known whether there was a third set of graves in the Taj or not.
