This monument is very similar to the Raj in Agra, but not half as grand. Definitely worth a visit. Although it is not very far from the city, you have to go past several narrow lanes to get there. The surroundings could be better maintained and are not upto the mark when compared to the famous Ellora & Ajanta caves.

Bibi ka Makbara is a tomb which was made by the son of Aurangzeb in the memory of his beloved mother. The Archeological Survey of india takes its care. A must visit if you are in aurangabad.

Bibi ka Maqbara is built almost as a copy of the Taj. On seeing the Taj Mahal, the reality is as good as the anticipation. Here we can see that the architects of Bibi ka Maqbara have tried to copy the Taj as faithfully as possible. It was built about 20 years after the Taj, by Shah Alam the son... More

It is almost as good as TajMahal except stone used is different & so is damaged a bit. worth watching for those who have not visited TajMahal or for those who wants to see replica of TajMahal.

This wonder is built by Shah Azam son of Aurangzeb in the memory of his mother. This attraction looks like a miniature of Taj Mahal, Agra. On a lighter note to me it looked like a Taj Mahal which has gone on a strict weight loss diet. Elaborate gardens, minars,fountains and the intricacy of Mughal architecture will make your visit...

good historical place but no maintenance of building & gardan. no garbage bins are their, Gardan is like junk yard. caretaker authority can make it the best garden of Aurangabad or may be in Maharashtra.

One of the finest stucco work on red sandstone. ASI is trying its best to maintain it. The mini Taj, as it is known is also a beauty by itself. Please do not miss this masterpiece. It maybe the only monument in memory of mother in the world. It was built by Shah Azam, son of Aurangzeb for his mother.

After reading all reviews, I had it in mind that its not as grand as Taj Mahal, but first look of this monument inevitably reminds you of Taj Mahal. The charm and delight when you get the first glimpse of Taj Mahal is completely absent here. Not sure whats lacking, may be the monument is not as well maintained as... More
