Built by son of Aurangzeb, in memory of his mother, this mausoleum provides glimpses of Mughal architecture. Though within the vicinity of main city, the place warrants better communication facilities, especially buses. With beautiful view in a peaceful and calm place, the top view of the Sanctum with the tomb of Dilras Banu Begum is really wonderful, interestingly, currencies of... More

This tomb had an interesting history and is said to be the mini version of the Taj Mahal. There is a similarity but the real thing really is a 100 times more imposing and beautiful ! Here we met many schoolchildren and family parties all eager to be photographed and to photo us . A good place to go if... More

Though not as impressive as the Taj Mahal, still worth a visit as the setting is lovely and you meet many Indian families and children if you go on Sunday like we did.

It stands no comparison to the Taj Mahal but is a must watch for the ones who have never visited Taj. Nice serene place!

This is an awesome place located in Aurangabad District in Maharashtra. Everyone knows about this place in India. Because this is one of the Historic and Sign of Love. This is an duplicate copy of Taj Mahal. This place was construct by the king of Aurangabad in time of Mughals. This Maqbara contains the Darga of the queen of that... More

The temple is beautifully proportioned and perfectly placed within a garden - a really lovely site to visit, a very calm atmosphere and a good place to spend some time at. Only minus: I would really appreciate it if visitors did not use the votive spread on the grave as a dustbin, it is meant for flowers and coins, not... More

Even though it doesn't compare to the Taj, by itself the Bibi Ka Maqbara is quite an architectural beauty. Built of limestone and plaster its one of the sites to see in Aurangabad.

We went here late in the evening when it was already dark. Its not as big or grand as Taj Mahal, but still quite impressive. Built by Aurangzeb's son, the place has a charm of its own. The entrance gate, garden walkway (the fountains were not functional though), the minarets, the tomb and finally the mausoleum -- a good place... More

It is truly a mini Taj Mahal. I have never been to Agra, so was totally mesmerized by this beauty. And apparently not many are aware of this place.
