Taj Mahal 3D Puzzle 1077 pieces

I found the 3D Taj Mahal puzzle at a thrift store. I love puzzles so I purchased. I looked for a tutorial to make this puzzle easier, and there wasn’t one. So here it is for someone else.

For those that need the printed instructions: I will link those at the bottom

Puzzle01
Here’s what comes in the box: a bag of pieces, the cardboard is a center support, and two instruction papers. Its good to get a piece of cardboard that fits all the way under the puzzle, so you can move it around from table to table as you work.


Puzzle02
As you are taking out the sections with red dots, separate the pieces into lots of boxes. If they look similar, put them in the same box.

If I had it to do over again, I would start with the 4 towers that sit on the corners of the base support. When I got all finished, the towers did not fit easily or correctly. It could be my mistake with how I did the base pieces, or it could have been the puzzle company. I didn’t want to take off the base corners to find out. I didn’t care that much, but I would have cared in the beginning. So build the towers first, then build the base and make sure the towers fit those corners.

Here’s the outline of the puzzle. You may have to re do the corners because there are several choices when the top is put on in a few stages.

Puzzle05
I made some supports that go around the base as I worked on it. Eventually you won’t need them, but here at the beginning its helpful.

A little explanation about the instructions. I took many pix of the instruction booklet so hopefully everything is covered, so you will see that some steps are shown in more than one pix. Good Luck
