Taj Mahal replica to be built in Dubai

Just when you thought property developers in Dubai couldn't possibly become any more creative, details of an innovative new project that includes a giant replica of the Taj Mahal emerge.The Falconcity of Wonders (FCW) is a multi-purpose super development that will feature copies of some of the world's most recognisable landmarks and buildings.As well as the majestic Indian temple, the Emirates Road project will also house versions of the Egyptian pyramids, Great Wall of China, Leaning Tower of Pisa, Eiffel Tower and the Hanging Gardens of Babylon.The "World in a City" will enhance Dubai's reputation for having some of the most jaw-dropping buildings on the planet and tourists are likely to flock from far and wide to see the stunning development.Visitors to the emirate may have felt they had seen it all, with Dubai hosting the world's tallest building, as well as a number of unique exclusive man-made islands such as the Palm Jumeirah, but the FCW is taking things to the next level.Chief executive officer and chairman of Falconcity Salem Al Moosa said the Land of India section of the project will contain top-class commercial and hospitality facilities."We are delighted to have 'Taj Arabia' as part of our renowned project designed to engrave Dubai's place in the minds and hearts of world citizens," he remarked.The FCW has been designed to resemble a falcon - the UAE's national emblem - and it is a fitting tribute to the way the once quiet fishing village has transformed itself into one of the most modern and forward-thinking cities in the world.Although property investors became more restrained once the global financial crisis happened in 2008-09, numerous reports and studies have suggested that confidence is now returning.With prices and rents rising more and more each month, now is the perfect time for foreigners to secure assets in the UAE - especially with so many amazing new developments in the pipeline.
