Taj Arabia Palace Resort, a wedding destination, will resemble the shape of Taj Mahal, a timeless tribute to love (monument of love). It will be “several” times larger, comprising verdant gardens, water fountains and flowing streams, the developer said. It will be surrounded by Indian Raj and Mughal architectural landmarks which will feature retail and residential components.
