This is located approx 4-5 kms from rail station/ bus stand - auto should take approx Rs 15 per person. The design, architecture, outside ground design is same as Taj Mahal at Agra. Not so crowded, so you can comfortably roam around and enjoy the place. This is a tomb of Aurangzeb's wife.

Its constructed by Aurangzeb in memory of his wife. It looks similar to Taj Mahal. It was not constructed by marble. So its less shiny. You have to take an auto to reach this place. We were 5 people. We took one auto for Rs80. It took just 15mns. The place is less crowded and peaceful. The area is big... More

A short distance (rickshaw ride) outside Aurangabad's town centre, this mausoleum sits in parched but attractive grounds and exhibits the same beautiful symmetry of the Taj in Agra. Slightly stretched vertically, and with an open-sided mosque placed on one side (which has simple but elegant roofwork), the architecture is very pleasing. Bustle passed all of the tourists (me included) taking... More

As you approach the tomb of the Emperor Aurangzeb's wife you could easily think the Taj Mahal has somehow appeared in the Deccan, but the closer you get the more the differences become apparent. The graceful elegance of the Taj is missing, the mausoleum is much smaller and somewhat squat. If the Taj did not exist it would be more... More

This is a replica for Agra's Taj. But wait,do not compare it. You need to observe the solemn, white, brilliant building along with the four tall impressive minars with its wide, green, and quiet Mohgul gardens. The advantages is that 1) you will not find a crowded place and 2) you can see the actual tomb inside the building. Still,... More

If you have seen the Taj Mahal, then visit this monument without any expectations, else you will be disappointed. It was made to look like the Taj Mahal, but if you have a closer look, it is nothing in comparison to the Taj Mahal. If you happen to visit Aurangabad and if time permits, you can visit.

Pretty rubbish to be honest but there's not a lot else in Aurangabad! Expected nothing more. Gardens are dull as well.
