Dhaka Bangladesh Taj Mahal

Replica Taj Mahal Bangladesh is a scaled copy of the original Taj Mahal is located 10 miles east of the Bangladeshi capital, Dhaka, in Sonargaon. Unlike the original, work on the building took only five years. Ahsanullah Moni, a wealthy Bangladeshi filmmaker, announced his 'Copycat version of Taj Mahal' project in December 2008.

The project cost about USD$ 56 Million and was built 20 miles northeast of Capital Dhaka, on Tajmahl road Dhaka. This caused complaints from Indian officials, "You can't just go and copy historical monuments," an official of the Indian High Commission in Dhaka told the press and told how he built a replica of the Taj Mahal so that the poor of his nation can realize their dream of seeing neighboring India's famed monument.

Construction work began five years ago, but Mr. Moni says that he came up with the idea in 1980 when he first visited the actual Taj in Agra, northern India. He said that his homage had been built because most people living in Bangladesh - where nearly half of the population exists below the poverty line - cannot afford to travel to India to see the real thing. "Everyone dreams about seeing the Tajmohol, but very few Bangladeshis can make the trip because it's too expensive for them," he said. Mr. Moni first visited the original in 1980 and has made six return trips. 

So enamored was he of the site that he hired a group of architects and sent them to India to measure it. 

He said: "I used the same marble and stone as in the original Taj. We used machinery, which is why it took less time. Otherwise, it would have taken 20 years and 22,000 workers to complete it." 

Last night Mr. Mittal, at the Indian High Commission, concede that the replica was unlikely to detract from the magnificence of the original. He also admitted that visitors were unlikely to mix up one with the other. "A copy is a form of flattery, I suppose," he said.

The construction of Bengali taj mahal had irritated the Indian High Commission in Dhaka. Early reports said the Indian High Commission in Bangladesh says it will sue Ahsanullah Moni for copyright infringement of the original 350-year-old building; however, the Indian High Commission later announced that the replica was unlikely to detract visitors from the original.
