If you have already visited the original Taj Mahal, this place is like quick trip kind. its made of white cement and is in a poor maintenance. since I spent about 3 days at the original Taj Mahal, i did not find this place very interesting but I am sure its worth visit.

Obviously it is not as spectacular or grand as Taj Mahal, but still beautifully made, so it is worth the visit. The gardens around and especially pathways are very beautiful and nice. There are also much less crowd here than in Taj, so once you step off the main route it gets very peaceful and serene. The complex is much... More

This monument was built much later then Taj Mahal. The money came from the sale of the ring.This is a modest attempt to copy Taj.

A copy of Agra's Taj Mahal, Bibi Ka Maqbara is an almost exact replica made from brick and white cement. I only visited the place since I had some time left in Aurangabad. The Maqbara needs to be maintained properly as it's chipping paint and plaster in some places. If you're already seen the Taj, give this a miss. ~... More

I visited this place in evening. BIBI ka maqbara is beautiful architecture of ancient India. It is like a mini Taj Mahal. But am very upset to see that it is very poorly maintained by government. The must preserve this sculpture. The ideal time to visit this place is in day light as government do not lighten up this place.

The Meaning of BIBI (Mother) and the meaning of BIWI (Wife), Bibi Ka Maqbara "Tomb of the Lady" is a maqbara located in Aurangabad, Maharashtra, India. It was commissioned by the sixth Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb in the late 17th century in the memory of his first wife, Dilras Banu Begum (posthumously known as Rabia-ud-Daurani). It bears a striking resemblance to... More

Our initial expectation was that it would be similar to the Taj, but this is a long shot. The structure is similar to that of the Taj, but the place is really poorly maintained. The whole structure is not of marble - just some of the areas are made of marble and the other parts are built of stone. Part... More

Gives you a feel of seeing Taj, though I'm sure they are both incomparable. Intricate Mughal architecture and some beautiful view around, you can plan your trip to this place in the evening and spend some time in the courtyards around. Visited in June 2013. Tripadvisor does not let me choose before Aug 2013.

We visited Bibi ka Maqbara early in morning, around 7 am (they open at 6.30 am). I would suggest this time, as it is almost empty at this time. One can have the monument to himself, which is never possible with Taj Mahal. MAintenance is a bit poor, with the waterway dry and slimy, doors to the minar broken at... More
