Replica of Taj Mahal; situated in the heart of Aurangabad and built in memory of Aurangzed's wife. Not as huge as Taj Mahal is but good place to visit.

Exactly the same as Taj Mahal but it is a scaled down version of the original due to budget constraints..Must to visit.

Only thing is this attraction is a copy of the great Taj Mahal, but there can not be any comparison. After all this is a copy. There is nothing much to see at this place. There is a big garden, but you can spend max on an hour to cover this attraction. It was a nice effort to build a... More

Built on the design of the Taz mahal, this place is quite an impressive place to see when you visit the tourist place of Aurangabad. the place is very well kept, quite clean and decently maintained. It is one of the must see places when you are traveling in and around Aurangabad.

That the locals call this the "Mini Taj Mahal" is adorably sweet. Architecturally, of course that makes sense, but in terms of the actual monument, it's a bit like calling your local parish church the "Mini St. Peters". Set in really well kept, manicured grounds, the mini Taj isn't nearly so well maintained. A lot of the features and surrounding... More

great piece of imitation created by son of aurangzeb, so much so that when inspite of all the hurdels the tomb was completed and aurangzeb saw it he changed the name from maa ka maqbara to bibi ka maqbara.

It's touted as a Taj Mahal me-too but doesn't come anywhere close to the jewel of Agra. Bibi ka Maqbara was a disappointment. As a history buff it was a must visit but was honestly, let down. The original structure itself is a poor cousin of the Taj and maintenance has been less than satisfactory.
