Our initial expectation was that it would be similar to the Taj, but this is a long shot. The structure is similar to that of the Taj, but the place is really poorly maintained. The whole structure is not of marble - just some of the areas are made of marble and the other parts are built of stone. Part... More

Gives you a feel of seeing Taj, though I'm sure they are both incomparable. Intricate Mughal architecture and some beautiful view around, you can plan your trip to this place in the evening and spend some time in the courtyards around. Visited in June 2013. Tripadvisor does not let me choose before Aug 2013.

We visited Bibi ka Maqbara early in morning, around 7 am (they open at 6.30 am). I would suggest this time, as it is almost empty at this time. One can have the monument to himself, which is never possible with Taj Mahal. MAintenance is a bit poor, with the waterway dry and slimy, doors to the minar broken at... More

Constructed by Prince Azam Shah in memory of his mother Rabia-ul-Durrani alias Dilras Banu Begum (Aurangzeb’s wife), between 1650-57 AD is truly an outstanding work of architecture. Also known by Bibi-Ka-Maqbara, the mausoleum stands within an enclosed area measuring 458x275m approximately and is surrounded on all sided by a symmetrically planned garden, with paved paths, channels of running water and...

This is the replica of Taj-Mahal. This is very beautiful heritage. Whenever you visit to Maharashtra, Pl. do not forget to see this "Bibi-ka-Maqbara". Entrance fee is very nominal. There is a suggestion to Maharashtra Govt. - Pl. make this place as famous as Taj-Mahal. Maharashtra Govt. has to do the plantation & fountains around this to make this place... More

Known as the Mini-Tajmahal this structure looks amazing from far, but when you get close, it is a bit let down if you have seen thee actual Tajmahal. This is not well maintained.

Bibi Ka Maqbara at Aurangabad bears a striking resemblance to the famous Taj Mahal,located at Agra. Though it resembles much closer to Taj Mahal, the fame has not spread world wide, whereas Taj Mahal is one of the Seven Wonders of the World. It was commissioned by the sixth Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb in the late 17th century in the memory... More
