We’ve watched Dubai turn from desert to empire in just a few years, and with the crisis around the world, we thought that they would have to cut back costs and slow down on the artificial building… But we were wrong!
Dubai will soon be adding another ostentatious building to its skyline as developers announced they plan to build an exact replica of India’s famed Taj Mahal. So if you were planning to visit India in a few years, cancel your reservations since India will be relocating to a closer area!
The project, called “Taj Arabia,” will be four times bigger than the original Taj Mahal and will include a 300-room five star hotel, apartments, restaurants and shops. The developers are hoping, among other things, that Taj Arabia will also become a symbol of love and a destination for big weddings.
Situated in ‘Falcon City’, the Taj replica will be accompanied by representations of other architectural wonders such as the Hanging Gardens of Babylon and the Great Wall of China to the Pyramids, Eiffel Tower and Leaning Tower of Pisa. Could the Temple of Baalbeck be next? Or maybe a Jeita Grotto replica woul be a good addition to the Falcon City!
