“Mini Taj”

Tourists travelling in the West who do not have time to go to Agra to see the real Taj can get a feel by seeing Bibi ka Maqbara. So if you have couple hours before you catch a flight, this is a must

“Poor man's Tajmahal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Beautiful monument. The persons who have not seen Tajmahal, it is marvelous for them. The maintenance can be improved for making it more beautiful.

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

I have visited Bibi ka Maqbara a few times but I was most impressed this time around and hence this review.

I went there early in the morning, when it just opened its doors – I think this is the best time to visit most places in India – and I was happy to see that it was well-maintained! I remember when I visited a few years ago, that wasn’t the case.

The monument is a replica of the Taj Mahal and quite a good one at that – the gardens and landscaping are impressive too!

Something needs to be done about the entry fee – it’s just too low! Many would happy pay 3-4 times that and we could also probably have even better maintenance!

If you’re in Aurangabad, a must-visit attraction.

Tip: Go there in the morning at 8.


Secret tip: There’s a great view-point of Bib-ka-Maqbara from a hill behind the city. Ask any local in the area and they can guide you. A climb of 5-7 mins will take you there and the views are wonderful.

“the Mini Taji Mahal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

worth to visit it at tusk, so you can enjoy all the illuminations of this architectural place; a pity not having green in the gardens and total absence of water cascades all around...
