  Love Story Middle East

You'll no longer need to trek to Agra to lay eyes on the most romantic building in the world.
Billionaire developer Arjun Mehra is bringing the Taj Mahal to the Middle East, by building a replica of the Indian Palace in Dubai. 

The Taj Arabia will cost £621million to construct and it due to be opened next year. The new tourist attraction will also house copies of the Eiffel Tower, the pyramids of Ghiza and the Great Wall of China in Dubai’s new four-hectare ‘Falcon City of Wonders’.
What’s more, you can stay and enjoy the surroundings for as long as you like as the complex will include a 300 room, five star hotel, along with apartments, restaurants and shops.
Speaking about his decision to recreate this spectacular building, Mr Mehta said he believes it to be a ‘symbol of love’ and added: ‘It will include various facilities to encapsulate the beauty of life, love and romance mixed with the long established Mughal architecture.’
He also hopes the Taj Arabia will become a popular wedding and honeymoon destination.
He said: ‘Marriage is a celebration. It needs to be announced and glorified. Currently Dubai is not regarded as a wedding destination. People go to Bali and other exotic places to marry. Now they will come to Taj Arabia.’
Dubai has a reputation for spectacular architecture and already houses the world’s tallest tower – The Burj Khalifa, and The Atlantis; the first hotel to be partly built underwater.
