A Mini Version Of The Taj Mahal Sits In Legoland Dubai

Right on Indian Independence Day


If you haven't managed a trip to Agra, India to see the Taj Mahal...don't you worry!

The splendid ivory-white mausoleum has come to Dubai with a few changes though. Think 280,741 Lego bricks  instead of marble and a far shorter making time - just 2,019 hours (nothing in comparison to the original that took 20 years to finish). You'll also spot streaks of gold, black and red on this 280,000kg structure. 

The popular landmark was unveiled by Legoland Dubai...

You'll find it in Legoland Dubai’s Miniland when Dubai Parks and Resorts open on 31 October this year. And if you're already amazed...let us tell you that it's just one of 15,000 Lego models that you’ll see there.

And just in case you haven't seen the real one...
