Bibi ka Maqbara is definitely a replica of the Taj Mahal, but not to scale and definitely not to grandeur. It must have been an iconic structure in Aurangabad decades ago but is slowly losing its sheen. The authorities must take immediate action at preserving the monument. There is hardly anyone present to take care except for the pass checkers... More

I was there last week.. I was really shocked after seeing the monument.. It is in very bad condition.. It seems there is nobody to care about it.. Entry and front is in very poor condition.. I wish and hope that somebody will take some serious steps to preserve this monument.. At present it's badly managed site..

Very similar in structure to the world famous Taj Mahal at Agra, this closely replicates the much more famous structure. This one is very interesting in its own right, and definitely worth visiting if in the Aurangabad area. Well maintained, neat and tidy place.

Why to waste our time to visit this place ?? see original TajMahal in Agra. I think we should go to only specific/unique places only. Spare time we can invest for rest/food or something else.

There is really another Taj, no less in splendour. All done at a fraction of cost of the first Taj. It is amazing to see that there are no compromises anywhere, in fact this monument excels in its own right.

quite a rocking heritage place within city limits of Aurangabad, decent garden campus and mesmerizing monument. It will hardly take an hour of yours if you are in city. Highly Recommended

It's considered to be a replica of Taj Mahal, Agra. The monument is maintained okayish. Though improvisation is always there. There is a huge garden that leads to the monument and it's serene. Garden have green lawn and huge trees. Overall a good place to visit once and spend some 2 odd hours taking snaps and sight seeing!

Maqbara is normally built to bury a dead body on someone's death. This maqbara was built by a son for his mother while she was alive. Taj was built by his grand father for his wife. Though it look similar to Taj, it has very contrasts. Taj is built on octagon base design while maqabra is based on square base... More

Yet another poorly maintained historical site. It must have been magnificent hundreds of years ago with its extensive gardens and buildings and with plenty of water features. Today you will need a very fertile imagination to visualise it in its former glory. Can see a resemblance to the Taj but it does not have the scale or the charm of... More
