An Indian man who misses his bereaved wife installed a full-size wax figure of his wife in his'Dream House'.

Local media such as Times Now News and CNN broadcast reported this man's story with photos on the 12th.

According to reports, businessman Srinivas Murti unveiled the doll after having a housewarming party in his new house in southern Karnataka province on the 8th.

Having a house like this was an idea and a usual dream for his wife Madabi.

However, Madabi died in a car accident in 2017, before the building was completed.

Then Murti installed a full-size wax figure of his wife in this house to honor his wife.

In the published photos, this smiling doll in a traditional Indian costume sat on a sofa with trinkets on.

At first glance, skin wrinkles and hair are elaborately made so that you may be mistaken for a real person.

The couple's daughter, Anusha, said, "Mother made all the plans for this house. We couldn't imagine going into this house without a mother."

Anusha accompanied her sister with Madabi in a car accident, but suffered only minor injuries.

After Madabi's death, the family, with the advice of several people, entrusted a Bengalurus artist to make the doll.

Anusha said, "We wanted our mother to be with us as before."

When this story was revealed on the Social Network Service (SNS), netizens also welcomed the family's decision.

"This is the real Taj Mahal of modern times," said Netizen Vijay Nair, saying that you know how much your family misses her.

The Taj Mahal is a beautiful 17th-century tomb built by Emperor Shah Jahan of the Mughal Empire to commemorate Queen Mumtaz Mahal, who died while giving birth to her child.
