LEGO has announced the rerelease of its Taj Mahal building block set, which features one more block than the original and continues to hold its place as the second largest LEGO set of all time.

Brick by Brick

Totaling 5,923 pieces, the Taj Mahal set contains a single piece more than its 2008 iteration, according to The Brothers Brick.

The original set was released in 2008 and discontinued in 2010, and while the new iteration looks almost identical to the original, it comes at a $70 increase in price.

The Taj Mahal is one of the world’s most iconic buildings, and this reflects in the price tag the 2008-10 versions command—$3,000 is the cheapest currently on the market.

The original Taj Mahal was completed in 1658 as a mausoleum for Shah Jahan’s deceased wife, Empress Mumtaz Mahal. The structure features a number of decorative motifs and intricate carvings, and the set itself captures these details, including four arched facades, corner minarets, a central dome and other domed chambers.

Once built, the set stands at 16 inches high, 20 inches wide and 20 inches deep.

The set will be available online and in LEGO stores on Cyber Monday (Nov. 27) for $369.99.
