Taj Mahal Hotel Is Added to Dubai's Six-World Theme Park
Dubai is going all "Dubai" on us again, unveiling a plan to create a $1 billion "replica" of the Taj Mahal, which will include a 300-room, five-star hotel. Emphasis and quotations on the word replica due to the fact that Dubai's version of the iconic Indian structure will be four times larger than the original Taj Mahal.
Is anyone surprised by this?
This Taj Mahal is the most recent addition to the already in progress Falconcity of Wonders, a $35 billion-plus project located in Dubailand - a six-world theme park - featuring life-size reproductions of the Seven Wonders of the World (Eiffel Tower, Leaning Tower of Piza, Hanging Gardens of Babylon, etc.).
We will keep you updated as construction begins and the photos begin to roll out. The estimated completion date is 2014, and we cannot wait to see what kind of over-the-top toys will be in the Taj and how much you'll have to pay to play with them.
