Bibi ka Maqbara was a beauty once but getting faded away due to authoritative negligence. Still it is a great place to visit and compare the similarities with Taj Mahal. The Garden around the site is very green indeed

Worth a visit if you have not seen the real thing at Agra. Pales in comparison to other moghul era building in north india.

Something like the Taj but fails to attract . It has no Charm in it. But definitely worth a visit. Located centrally in Aurangabad can be visited during evenings to avoid the hot sun during day time.

The place was built in memory of a mother. Not quite an attraction but can visit once if in case you have the time.

There's a lot that needs to be done to improve the place including cleanliness & parking. The guides are poorly informed and one only pities such condition of a wonderful monument.

If you have already visited Taj Mahal, you will find this small size copy not so interesting. But being fair, this is a nice building to visit! The gardens seems to be dry, pond had no water... that makes this place look like a little bit abandoned, but still nice to visit!

This is a plain jane version of Agra's Taj Mahal. But worth a look if one is in Aurangabad. Does not take much time. Nicely made, with a tomb in the middle. Can skip if short of time.

Built by Azam Shah as a mausoleum for his mother Rabia-ul-Durrani, this serves as a humble cousin of Taj Mahal. Built in the typical Mughal Char Bagh style of architecture, this mausoleum is also built with white marble. The patterns and designs on the body are good, but not as intricate as the Taj. Anyway, these two monuments are incomparable.... More

The Maqbara remindes you a poor imitation of the great Taj Mahal, Agra. It was built by Mughal emperor Aurangzeb's son namely Prince Azamshah in memory of his mother Begum Rabia Durani in 1678. Attraction of Aurangabad.
