I visited Bibi ka Maqbara last month when I visited Ellora caves.The structure was same like we saw at Delhi Taj Mahal. I can't imagine on my eyes that I saw the same copy of Taj Mahal at Aurangabad. Can you imagine to see same structures in two cities. I advice you to once visit Bibi Ka Maqbara.

Its a great piece of art made by the son in memory of his mother. Though it still retains the charm, the harsh sunlight can b irritating! The place needs more green cover. There are trees in the huge garden but more are needed along the walking paths. Even then its a nice place though the actual tomb is desecrated... More

This is duplicate of the Taj Mahal, but not maintained properly. can be missed as well. The Bibi Ka Maqbara (Urdu: بیبی كا مقبرہ‎ "Tomb of the Lady") is a maqbara located in Aurangabad. It was commissioned by the sixth Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb in the late 17th century in the memory of his first wife, Dilras Banu Begum

You must visit this while you are in Aurangabad. May be a copy of Taj Mahal but has its own of beauty and charm .Take a walk to the end .Many locals also visit it often.

The Babi Ka Maqbara or the poor mans Taj as they call it locally is located around 20 mins drive from the city center. The roads to the place is good and it has ample car parking facility. The place is not properly maintained, but a must visit attraction in Aurangabad.

Even if you’ve been to the Taj a hundred times, this is well worth a visit. Far less crowded and more spacious and light filled inside. BUT 1) Bring a bottle of water, 2) Sun hat and 3) Most importantly, do take a guide at the entrance (100 R) BUT don’t let him whisk you round in a formulaic 5... More

This monument speaks volumes about the Mogul Empire. It is a mixture of Mortar, Marble and loads of skill where the work of Art is delicately displayed. The Emperor Aurangzeb's Tomb is 26 KM's away from here located at Khultabad. A very plain and simple Tomb just the opposite of Bibi Ka Maqbara.

Aurangzeb taking inspiration from his father shahjahan, recreated the Taj mahal as Bibi ka Maqbara for his wife. Though this stands way below the Tajmahal in its architecture it kind of looks good and unique. The minars in the middle and the lawns are good. The inside architecture is good and well maintained.

One should definitely have this place in the itenary list if you are visiting Aurangabad. This is almost exact replica of the World Famous Taj Mahal. This place really deserves lot of attention from Govt. Very capable place to attract huge number of tourist but poorly managed.
