LEGO 10256 Creator Taj Mahal is a ridiculously detailed set. But do you know what’s ridiculous about the set too? The price. Then again, that is a retired product anyways. Thankfully, for those who do not have deep pockets and/or have missed out on the opportunity, there is the LEGO 21056 Taj Mahal Building Set.
Aimed at adult fans of LEGO (AFOLs), the LEGO 21056 Taj Mahal Building Set lets you build one of the world’s most iconic architecture. At 2,022 pieces, the 21056 may not be as detailed, but it is no less impressive.
As a boon, you get the same effect (well, almost the same), but with less shelf real estate and it is very much lighter on your pocket compared to the US$399.99 set from a few years ago.
This 2,022-piece set replicates the key elements of one of the world’s most famous buildings, including the bulbous shape main dome and an abundance of details inside and out, including the crypt with tombs of Mumtaz and Shah Jahan, central chamber with 2 cenotaphs, monumental iwans, 4 chhatris and 4 slender minarets.
When completed, the LEGO 21056 Taj Mahal Building Set measures 7.5 inches tall, 9 inches wide and 9 inches deep (20 x 23 x 23 cm).
The LEGO 21056 Taj Mahal Building Set is available as we speak for US$119.99.
