To one who has not been in Agra, you show pictures of this and perhaps no one would notice the difference. If you're in Aurangabad, you must see it or yes.Very few foreign tourists, almost exclusively Indian families.

This may look many as a poor cousin of famed Taj mahal but in fact it is not! This monument by itself is nice and grand. While it may not exude the opulence that actual taj mahal does ( I've not seen Taj mahal yet) but it has its own charm. Place is clean, well maintaned. Ticket lines move quickly.... More

Visited this monument after Ellora caves and amazed to see this structure as well. This mini Taj Mahal was constructed at very minimum cost compared to the one of beautiful wonder of the world. Maintenance is not so good and wall plaster was getting off from outside of the structure.

Monument which is supposed to be a replica of the famous Taj Mahal. Situated with in Aurangabad city. Taxi drops you at the entry. Entry fee is Rs 5 per person. It will take around 30 minutes to go around the place. Official guides are available and can be hired by interested persons. There is a big garden behind the... More

We wouldn't recommend going out of your way to see this. However, if you are in town with a few minutes to spare -- go see it. The monument was very much worn down and the grounds were not kept up very well. It is a misnomer to call it a mini-tai -- it doesn't compare at all. It literally... More

Certainly a reminder of the grandeur of Taj, though not of the same stature and finesse, but a fine architectural monument in its own right. Everything resembles the Taj though its not made from the premium marble which the Agra monument can boast of. But somehow its felt that Bibi ka Maqbara needs to be maintained better and also publicized... More
