    PostSubject: Bangladeshi Taj Mahal   Wed Dec 17, 2008 3:52 pm

    India's embassy in Bangladesh on Wednesday voiced its displeasure over
    a life-size copy of the Taj Mahal, saying it would investigate to see
    if any copyright laws had been breached. Pics: Taj and its replica

    "You can't just go and copy historical monuments," fumed a spokesman at the Indian High Commission in Dhaka.

    "Someone will go out there and have a look. The reports we are reading
    say it is an exact replica. This is a protected site we are talking
    about so we need to find out if it really is the exact size," he told

    Bangladeshi film director Ahsanullah Moni unveiled his $ 58 million
    replica, located about 30 kilometres (20 miles) northeast of the
    Bangladeshi capital Dhaka, this week.

    Moni began building it five years ago but came up with the idea in 1980
    when he first visited the real "Monument to Love" in Agra, India.
    He imported marble and granite from Italy, diamonds from Belgium and used 160 kilos (350 pounds) of bronze for the dome.

    "Everyone dreams about seeing the Taj Mahal but very few Bangladeshis
    can make the trip because it's too expensive for them," he said.

    The Taj Mahal was built by Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his wife, Mumtaz Mahal, who died giving birth in 1631
