The Taj Mahal in India is revered as one of the seven wonders of the world.

Now a Bangladeshi filmmaker has built a replica of the monument in his home country.

One million people have visited the site since it opened 10 months ago.

But as Al Jazeera's Nicholas Haque reports from the Bangladeshi capital, Dhaka, not everyone is happy with the construction.

Indian authorities in Bangladesh are considering suing the owner for copyright infringement.
