This Lego Taj Mahal Took Over 2,000 Hours To Build And Looks Too Goddamn Realistic

Lego Shah Jahan approves.

To celebrate India's Independence Day, LEGOLAND Dubai released a sneak peek of a freakishly accurate Taj Mahal model created entirely out of Legos.

The Lego Taj Mahal will be part of the "Miniland" attraction in the park.

The model, which weighs about 645kg, comprises 2,80,741 Lego bricks, and the amount of detail on the whole thing is just bloody insane.

While the original rendition is said to have taken Shah Jahan and his mates about 20 years, this Herculean effort took 2,019 hours. Which is more or less 20 years in Lego years.

You'll be able to see the Taj Mahal, and all the other attractions at LEGOLAND Dubai, when it opens to the public on October 31.

It's safe to say that this effort would, at the very least, fool Lego Batman into thinking it's the real thing.
