In Bangladesh, appeared Taj Mahal 21-th century

December 22 2008

In Bangladesh, there was a replica of the Taj Mahal. The appearance of the monument to help the country fight the travel deficit.

After 355 years after Emperor Shah Jahan in Agra built around the Taj Mahal, filmmaker Asanulla Moni built exactly the same at home in Bangladesh. After that, interest in visiting the poor Asian nation, where every year come to no more than 10 000 people, has grown considerably.

Many come to admire solely on the new Taj Mahal. His way, almost indistinguishable from the original. This is understandable, because, before taking up construction of the monument, Asanulla Moni exhaustively studied the techniques of building and using the same materials that were used in the construction of India's Taj Mahal in the 17th century.

True, India is unhappy. Also tested in recent hefty travel deficit, and even on certain conditions, a host country to attend free of charge. Many in India believe that the director of the Bangladesh simply stole the idea from the neighbors.

However, he had nothing to fear. Copyright law at the Taj Mahal does not apply.
