Taj Mahal of Bangladesh is located 20 miles north-east of Dhaka city in Parab village of Sonargaon Upazila of Narayanganj district. This is an exact copy or replica of the Taj Mahal in Agra, India. The owner of the Taj Mahal, is a wealthy filmmaker Mani Ahsanullah. He said that the replica of this Taj Mahal has been made so that the poorer people of his country, who cannot visit the real Taj Mahal, can fulfill the dreams of the Taj Mahal, from their own country. The construction of the replica had irritated the Indian High Commission in Dhaka. Early reports said the Indian High Commission in Bangladesh says it will sue Ahsanullah Moni for copyright infringement of the original 350-year-old building; however, the Indian High Commission later announced that the replica was unlikely to detract visitors from the original. Within the Taj Mahal, there is a place of graves in Ahsanullah Moni and his wife Razia.
