A Lego Landmark

Inspired by History, drawing on patience and creativity skills to build this remarkable model.

Anika in Y8, having learnt about the Mughal Empire earlier this year, created a Lego replica of the Taj Mahal. Commissioned by the Emperor Shah Jahan in 1632 for his dead wife, Mumtaz, it was supposed to represent paradise on earth. It was a sign of the incredible wealth and power the Mughals had. We think she has replicated this with a precision that Shah Jahan himself would be proud of!
