An Indian villager has spent all his life savings to build a smaller version of the Taj Mahal, the world's most famous memorial to love, in memory of his deceased wife.

Faisal Husain Qadri, a retired postal worker, says he wants to immortalise his love for his wife, who passed away recently from cancer, with a replica of the historic monument.

The new building is being built in the Kaser Kalan village in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, close to the original Taj Mahal.
