Dubai to have it’s own Taj Mahal: Taj ArabiaIn Blog
In the 17th century, Emperor Shahjahan with a workforce of more than thousand men, built a monument of love in memory of his wife. This is Taj Mahal, a white marble mausoleum which was built in time more than 20 years. Now, 350 years after the love heritage, a developer in Dubai has unveiled a plan to construct a replica of the Taj Mahal, twice or thrice in size of the original, in just 2 years. This luxury hotel, dubbed as Taj Arabia, will be a large commercial complex featuring a 300 room hotel, shops and commercial spaces.
Project Taj Arabia is approximated to cost 1 billion when it will be completed in 2014. According to the team behind the mega project, ‘Taj Arabia’ will be part of the 3.8 million square meter Falcon City of Wonders on Emirates Road. They hope it will be used to hold weddings and as a backdrop for Bollywood movies.
