Fake Taj Mahal found in Bangladesh!

Fake Taj Mahal
Travelers, beware of copycat monuments! A fake, life-size copy of Taj Mahal is being constructed in Bangladesh. Take a look at the picture. This £38m fake building, commissioned by wealthy film director Ahsanullah Moni, will be located about 20 miles north east of the Bangladeshi capital Dhaka.

The construction of the fake Taj Mahal began five years ago and now India is showing it's displeasure over the exact copy. The Indian embassy in Bangladesh has voiced its displeasure and is hoping to sue for copyright infringement.

On the other hand, in support of the project, the Bangladeshi director said: "Everyone dreams about seeing the Taj Mahal but very few Bangladeshis can make the trip because it's too expensive for them." He came up with the idea in 1980 after first visiting the original "Monument to Love" in Agra, India. He has imported marble and granite from Italy, diamonds from Belgium and used 160kg of bronze for the dome.

Taj MahalWell, in our own view, we just can't compare the fake Bangladeshi one with this real one. Because Taj Mahal is the greatest gift one can give for love. It is one and only one. No one can recreate it. Just take a look at the fake again. It just looks like a film set or a building designed by a novice designer. Even there is no similarity in the proportion of the structure. So, there is no need to worry about it. What you say?
