In the year 2266, Earth mathematician and pacifist Alfred Bleikoff, who had been cryogenically frozen in the 1990s, was revived and permitted to tour Earth anonymously before an official reception. James T. Kirk, Spock, Leonard McCoy and Montgomery Scott showed him the Eiffel Tower, the Statue of Liberty, the Great Pyramid and Mount Everest. But when the group disembarked from a transport in India en route to the Taj Mahal, Bleikoff was recognized by Rajipur, a reporter for Interplanetary Press, prompting them to hold an impromptu press conference inside the Taj Mahal. It was here that Bleikoff first revealed his initial impressions of 23rd century Earth, news which went viral. (TOS comic: "Prophet of Peace")
By 2270, the androids of planet Mudd had built a full-scale replica of the Taj Mahal for Harry Mudd, which he called the Mudd Mahal. (TOS - Mudd's Angels short story: "The Business, As Usual, During Altercations")
