LEGO Makes Impressive Buildings Replica


A pile of Lego bricks, of assorted colors and sizes.

I remember I used to having fun playing Lego, building the colourful bricks into various shapes when I was a kids. No, I am never good in constructing them. A simple house will do. *smile*

There was this Lego's fair (I simply named it!) with the theme Treasure Lego in KLCC last week. I was actually wandering alone while waiting for hubby.

So, just wanna share what they have done with the LEGO bricks. Heheheh... Buildings replica of...

Completed in 1998 and became the tallest building in the world on the date of completion. It still remains the tallest twin buildings in the world thou.


Bricks used approx 150k.




#2 The Taj Mahal - Agra, India

A Mausoleum built on the orders of Shah Jehan, the fifth Muslim Mogul emperor, to honor the memory of his beloved late wife. The emperor was consequently jailed and it is said, that could then only see the Taj Mahal out of his small cell window.
