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.

Exact replica of the Taj. They're renovating it to keep it better. Perfect for school trips. (although I'm kind of sad that the museum is closed now.)

Word of advice - Go see the Taj Mahal in Agra. This monument looks like a cheap replica which is sold as a tourist souvenir

It is situated at the heart of Aurangabad city. I would prefer not to compare with the great Taj Mahal. Does not carry that elegance or beauty but nonthless it is worth seeing.

The monument was impressive, well maintained and I'd recommend a visit if in the area to see the caves.
