Bibi Ka Maqbara is a well made monument . Of course it can't match up to Taj Mahal but gives a decent idea as it's made just like Taj Mahal. Unlike Taj which is a symbol of Love this is made by the Son for his mother. If the authorities invest more and help beutify this historic monument then it... More

Bibi ka Maqbara is truly magical. It is an exact replica of Taj Mahal imagine building a replica during those times when there was photos to capture. Taj Mahal is built with complete marble while Bibi ka Maqbara is partially marble and POP. Once it was in the outskirts of Aurangabad but now it is in middle of the city... More

It's made by the son of Mughal Smarat Aurangzeb in the memory of his mother... It was started with a copy of the famous Tajmahal but due to lack of money the same could not be done properly. Still nice to see...

A nice place to see but lacking in maintenance. Its sad that such a beautiful monument is totally ignored. It is called as the Taj of Deccan but totally in a dilapidated condition. Hope it will be soon restored.

The monument identical to the Taj in Aurangabad, Maharashtra is a mausoleum called Bibi Ka Maqbara ("Tomb of the Lady") built by Prince Azam Shah, the son of the sixth Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb,in the memory of his mother, Dilras Banu Begum. So Bibi Ka Maqbara, which draws its inspiration from the famous Taj Mahal of Agra is an architectural wonder... More

As with all monuments in India around which a city has grown haphazardly as the guardians of heritage sites looked away callously, the roads to Biwi ka Maqbara are filthy and crowded and you wonder why you continue on it. As you enter the monument's campus, the stark contrast between the filthy modern city and the neat and elaborately planned... More

Bibi ka Maqbara is an almost exact duplicate of the Taj Mahal. Only the carvings here are mostly done on plaster of paris, and not marble.
