I would give it 4 star because i do not like the way the place was kept. With so much of historic significance this place should be kept better. People ask for donation and money is also pathetic and demeans muslim culture

This architectural masterpiece is like a smaller Taj Mahal, with less crowd, which make it really worth discovering.

Best visited post the afternoon scorching heat is over. A miniature Taj Mahal, well maintained and packed with people. The parking space provided is a bit of a pain; its within the town so access is not a concern.

This monument was made by Aurangzeb's son for his mother. The son has tried to copy the Taj Mahal made by his grandfather. It's very interesting how he has copied the elements of Taj to replicate one of the seven wonders. Though it can never match the Taj, but surely a visit if you are in Aurangabad...

A good copy of the Taj Mahal, Agra. It is worth atleast one visit. It looks beautiful even at night when it moderately lite up. It is open all days from 8am to 8pm. Maintenance is poor, but the structure is still holding on.

If you have already visited the original Taj Mahal, this place is like quick trip kind. its made of white cement and is in a poor maintenance. since I spent about 3 days at the original Taj Mahal, i did not find this place very interesting but I am sure its worth visit.

Obviously it is not as spectacular or grand as Taj Mahal, but still beautifully made, so it is worth the visit. The gardens around and especially pathways are very beautiful and nice. There are also much less crowd here than in Taj, so once you step off the main route it gets very peaceful and serene. The complex is much... More
