Anand who never told the media how much it cost him to build the house said that he wanted it to be the talk of the town and different from many others out there, Indian Today.
Many love the house
The building’s dome is 29ft high with large towers. The couple who have two children in their 20s was only able to move into it earlier this year.
Since they moved in, tourists have been swarming around the house to take pictures. About-to-weds also come to get their pre-wedding photoshoots done.
It should be noted that the original Taj Mahal in Uttar Pradesh was built by Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan, as a tomb for his wife who died in childbirth. The original Taj sits on a 42-acre land amid other historic buildings.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a young man, Maazi Ogbonnaya Okoro, put smiles on his mother’s face and built her a four-bedroom house.
In a message exclusively sent to Legit.ng by Israel Usulor, the man relived how the wind blew off the roof of their old house after he returned home from his National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) programme years ago.
Ogbonnaya who is a graduate of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, said he vowed to make his mother proud now that she is alive, so she can enjoy the comfort of life.
