Tajmahal of Bengal (বাংলার তাজমহল) is a scaled copy of the original Tajmahal (a Mughal mausoleum located in Agra, India) located 10 miles east of Sonargaon. Unlike the original, work on the building took only five years. Ahsanullah Moni, a wealthy Bangladeshi film-maker, announced his ‘Copycat version of Tajmahal’ project in December 2008. The project cost about USD$ 56 Million, and was built to the northeast of Capital Dhaka. This caused complaints from Indian officials that copying Historical Monument is Illegal. Founder explained that he built this replica of the Tajmahal so that the poor people of his nation can realize their dream of seeing neighboring India’s famed monument.
If you start your journey from Gulistan Bus stop of Dhaka, then you can follow Dhaka-Chittagong highway, After reaching at Madanpur, turn Left to Gazipur Road, then Perabo where Banglar Tajmahal is located.
Interestingly some people visit this place to compare the original Tajmahal with the artificial one. But, If your intention is to compare then it would seem very odd and irrational to you. We would like to suggest you to enjoy & observe the Architectural property of this building rather comparing.
