Mughal emperor Shah Jahan, who built the Taj Mahal in fond memory of his beloved wife Mumtaj is considered one of the wonders of the world. It has also made its rank in the top five world's best tourist attraction.

A similar case has come out, where a retired post master, Faizul Hasan Qadri from Kaser Kalan village in Uttar Pradesh's Bulandshahr district is building a replica of Taj Mahal in fond memory of his beloved wife Tajamulli.

Faizul married Tajamulli in 1953 and his wife was diagnosed with throat cancer and died in 2011.

The 80-year-old man decided to built a mini Taj, in fond memory of his wife. He sold his wife's jewellery and a piece of land for constructing the mini Taj.

But now he is facing some financial crisis to finish it. He has spent around Rs.11 lakhs and needs Rs. 6-7 lakhs more to get the marble studded and give it a finishing touch.

Many people including the Chief Minister of the state offered him monetary help, to which he denied as it is his contribution towards his beloved 'begum'.

Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has appreciated his dedication and work.
