Though it is not as big as the building it was modelled after, it’s dome is 29ft high with large towers and it has four bedrooms, a library, and a hall.
Anand who did not disclose how much it cost him to build the house, said that he wanted it to be the talk of the town and different from many others out there, Indian Today.
