An Indian man has built a house for his wife in the style of the famous monument to love, the Taj Mahal.
Anand Prakash Chouksey, a teacher in the central state of Madhya Pradesh, built the house as a scaled down replica of the world famous building as a sign of his love for his spouse.
Featuring four bedrooms, a library and a meditation room built at Chouksey's wife's request, the white house also has a domed roof and intricate carving and gold decorations inside.
"She only had one demand with this house that she wanted a good meditation room. So, I told the engineers to put a special focus on the meditation room," Chouksey said of his wife.
The family visited the Taj Mahal in Agra and used images from the internet to obtain the exact measurements for the scaled-down romantic monument.
"We wanted to make an exact miniature version of the Taj Mahal, perfectly to scale, to the centimetre," said Chouksey's son, Kabir Chouksey, adding: "We had to rebuild some arches three to four times because there was some difference, sometimes the difference was so tiny that it's negligible to the eye."
Sculptors were commissioned from the eastern state of West Bengal, while other artisans who worked on the house came from across India. The build cost approximately $260,000.
Chouksey's mini-Taj Mahal is open to visitors, just like its more famous counterpart, but only during school hours.
India's best-known attraction, the Taj Mahal was commissioned in 1632 by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his late wife Mumtaz and is visited by nearly seven million tourists a year, according to official data.
