The construction work has been going on for the last 36 years, but due to the non-completion of the construction work, it could not be started till date. Due to which people have now started calling it a haunted hotel or a ‘cursed hotel’. Many people also know it by the name of ‘105 Building’.

A lot of money was spent on that. It is said that if this hotel had been completed and started on time, it would have been called the world’s tallest hotel. However, this title was never his destiny.
