Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best sets ever!! I always wanted this set, and to my surprise Lego re-issued it! I stayed up on november 27th to get it, and bought it as an early Christmas present. I build this set during the Christmas holidays. There is a fair amount of repetition in building this set, which is logical, because the Taj Mahal is a symmetrical building. So the repetition didn't bother me so much. It was also helpfull: you don't need so much space, because you can build the different parts first, and put them together later. And now it is finished, and it looks great. It is a big set, just like the large version of Sydney Opera house from a few years ago (but that one was more challenging). I hope Lego will re-issue more great sets from the past.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seventh wonder of the Lego world Great item, but some small issues. The four towers are very loose and a slight bump or movement will cause them to come apart or fall. The other issue is the four large openings. The grey bricks surrounding the openings are also loose and will not stay in place while putting this item together. Moving this item from the assemble area to my display table was also a project in its own right. The center hall is easally moved, but the four lower outer walls cannot be transported without separating them. Besides all that, the cost was worth it. This is a display piece not a play piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible!! I stayed up all night just to buy this one! i was lucky enough to buy one as soon as lego updated there page bought it The box is huge!!! I love it this is a real lego set here As you open the box there are two white boxes inside which really add weight to the box inside there are baseplates and numbered bags the instruction booklet even comes sealed in a bag the build is very easy to follow and the colors of the pieces are beautiful classic lego white Highly recommend my favorite part of the build was the top middle piece Had a blast building it however a word to lego please release highly sought after sets that were available in the past I also bought this set to support the idea of releasing sets exclusively from the lego vault a two thumbs up

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great set, with some minor flaws Assembling it was a challenging experience, and very enjoyable, even though it has a lot of repetition. However, the structure of the towers in the corners is not very stable, they are quite wobbly (of course, as this set is meant as a showpiece, not for playing with it, it's not really causing problems). Another minor problem I had was that even though most of the 1x1 stud flat pieces had a spare part, which they do in most sets, the transparent ones used for the windows didn't, and they are the easiest to lose accidentally. I almost came a piece short of these, when one of them got stuck in its bag, and I didn't notice until I ran out of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Extremely pleased with this; I got this as a Christmas present and it was definitely worth building. It's quite big to look at and the detail is brilliant. Even though it had several repetitive stages, it certainly put my patience to the test. It still looks phenomenal! At 16 years old, I just can't stop building Lego! Love it. This is actually the second biggest Lego model I own, in terms of pieces, my biggest being the UCS Milliennium Falcon, which I still have yet to build! The Lego team have done really well with this! My next review will probably be for the UCS Millennium Falcon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Return of a Classic I was beyond excited when seeing that Lego was re-releasing this set. Being the now second largest set ever released, I had been wanting to get my hands on it for years. The details on it are beyond gorgeous and it's definitely a show-stopper of any collection. The overall building process is not very complicated, especially since it requires repeating mostly the same steps four times for each side. The repetitiveness of it, and the pain of stacking small studs for the widows are the only thing that prevented me from giving this set a 5/5. As a warning, the finger tips will be in pain if doing it all at once. There's still a good amount of challenge for expert builders, mainly with the set comprising mostly of white bricks. Pay close attention to the dome, it's easy to misplace pieces there. It's a fun build, and with a lot of the steps repeating, it's a good one that a group of people can work on simultaneously. Thank you for bringing this one back, Lego. It's a crowd pleaser!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Building Experience This set is both very fun to build and somewhat of a challenge. I am an adult collector and the expansiveness of the set along with the various architectural features really made this build enjoyable. It is done in sections so it is easy to portion off. It is also very helpful to help gauge progress as these sections are completed. Another home run from LEGO for children and adults alike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and Fun to Build I have wanted this set for a few years but I never thought I would actually own it one day. It is everything I was hoping for and more. The building looks beautiful and it is a perfect size, large enough to admire the detail but not too big where you can't find a place to display it. I think it looks so much nicer than in the pictures too. The instructions are very easy to follow and pretty short since many of the groups of steps are for 2 or 4 copies of the same part of the building (4 columns, 4 sides, 4 corners, etc.). I would recommend this set to anyone. It has become my favorite LEGO set.
