“Taj replica”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Beautiful replica. In the city of Aurangabad. Maintained well. Small monument. Will not take much time. Carry umbrella, very hot. The gardens are big, but could have been developed better.

“Dyslexic Taj of South”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Though it has been advertised as the Taj of south India, the condition of this historical monument is piteous. Like most of the sites in Maharashtra, the government is just not bothered about preserving history.

Also, note that like any other tourist place even this place has "tourist-guides" who are basically thieves, all the tell you is a couple of shayaris/rhymes and whatever is inscribed in the rock, so please avoid them.

A funny or shall i say disheartening site is that of the tomb, where for best reasons known to weirdos, money has been thrown all over it, coins, notes and even jewelry.

“Replica of the Taj Mahal, worth a visit only if you are in Aurangabad.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013 via mobile

Bibi Ka Maqbara is worth visiting only if you happen to be in Aurangabad. It could have been better maintained and managed. I enjoyed my visit to Bibi ka Maqbara as i met up with an old friend from Africa and he knew a lot about the place.
