Tajmahal, a masterpiece illustrating the love story of Shah Jahan and Mumtaz has remained an epitome of love that has inspired many over the centuries.
Taking inspiration from this iconic monument, Anand Prakash Chouksey, a resident of Burhanpur, Madhya Pradesh, has built a replica of the Taj Mahal and gifted it to his wife Manjusha Chouksey. The couple even paid a few visits to the Taj Mahal In Agra for studying its architecture closely and later, asked the engineers to take note of the structural details.
The original plan of Chouksey was to build a house 80 feet high, he urges his engineer to construct a house that high but they were denied permission to do so. Following the rejection, he decided to build a Taj Mahal-like structure.
This one-of-a-kind structure for Chouksey’s was built over three years. The engineers built it based on a 3D image of the Taj Mahal.
Chouksey believes that his unique house of his will serve as a spectacle that no tourist can afford to miss while visiting Burhanpur.
The house is spread across 90 square metres with minarets. The basic structure occupies 60 square metres. The dome is 29 feet high and consists of two bedrooms on two floors. The house also has a kitchen, a library and a meditation room, according to the consulting engineer Praveen Chouksey. He had also visited the Taj Mahal to study it in detail. He also went to Bibi Ka Maqbara, a similar monument in Aurangabad.
