Dubai has turned to India for inspiration for its latest construction mega-project, a massive replica of the Taj Mahal that’s being touted as an over-the-top wedding venue. The project, which surfaced in the press late last week, could take two years to construct and cost more than a billion dollars (£665 million), according to The Telegraph.
Called the Taj Arabia, the Dubai version has little in common with the 17th century mausoleum apart from the facade. In addition to a wedding venue that holds 3,000 guests, it will feature a five-star hotel, residences, and massive retail space, according to its website.
The Taj Arabia will be located in the Falconcity of Wonders, a real estate project that will feature replicas of several wonders of the world, and is being developed by Link Global Ltd.
