Though much smaller in scale and charm, it has its own identity. Lacks maintainence but still is a site to visit to earn your own bruch with history. Must take care of SMALL CHILDREN while visiting the main structure. The balustrade is really low.

Also known as the 'second' Taj Mahal, this structure and its surroundings do resemble the famous Taj in Agra. Close to the city, it is an interesting attraction to visit in Aurangabad. Well maintained with good surroundings, it is certainly has a more relaxing ambience as compared to its more famous cousin since the crowds are much lesser here. At... More

It is not the Taj but a smaller replica and Bibi ka Maqbara means "tomb of lady". This mausoleum is also called as Taj of Deccan as it tried hard to match the grandeur of the original. this was built by Aurangazeb's son prince Azam shah in memory of his mother during 1651 to 1661. Worth paying a visit once.

So they call this place as a smaller version of The TAJ MAHAL. However, its obviously not much the hype. Although its a good one time visit if you happen to visit this city.

The structure is definitely a junior Taj Mahal, but definitely doesn't look like a poor cousin. Quite a stunning structure in itself

However if you have visited Taj mahal at Agra, you can avoid Bibi-ka-maqbara as it is a miniature version & not really close to that class of the Taj. Bibi-ka-maqbara remains open till 9pm, so go for Daulatabad fort & Ellora first as these will get closed by 5pm.

A Taj Mahal lookalike. Within the city of Aurangabad. Can be covered in 30 minutes. Not as special as the Taj, but can be visited once.

First.. people of to stop comparing this with the Taj mahal... cause this monument has survived with the least of the maintenance that it it due. I am sure it is not even allotted 1% of the maintenance cost that is allocated for Taj mahal. Yet .. I was mesmerised by its beauty and loved the detail and craftsmanship on... More

Bibi ka Makbara looks good in photos but the maintenance of this monument leaves a lot to be desired.
