Good attraction, nice view

Although not as charming as the Taj this place deserves a visit at least ones. The surrounding view is also great

Biwi ka Maqbara, was built by son of Aurangzeb, in memory of his wife. It is in Aurangabad city. Very nice replica of Taj mahal. I liked the place but required little maintenance to preserve the monument. It is worth a visit if you are in or around Aurangabad city.

Not far from Aurangabad, on the way to Ajanta caves we have visited to a mausoleum for Aurangzeb’s wife, often called the ‘Mini Taj’. The mausoleum appears similar to the Taj, but is smaller and mostly faced in white-painted plaster, instead of the marble with inlaid coloured stones ('pietra dura’) . This Taj has been built 40 years later than... More

Really nice replica of the original Taj Mahal. Reasonably well maintained. However, more can be done to ensure greenery (watering the lawn), working fountains etc. Overall a must visit for all.

Its the tomb of Aurangzeb's queen. The style is similar to the Taj Mahal - but of course no where close to the Taj in terms of grandeur or details; but its beautiful nevertheless. Well worth a visit. Not very far from Aurangabad City and can be covered on the way back from Ellora. There is safe parking available near... More

Replica of Tajmahal. Good to see during the day time. It has ample parking space. Renovation is going on hence old marbles are getting replaced with new ones.

We visited the Bibi Ka Maqbara with a local guide which helped a lot in putting this attractive building into an historical context. The building compound is attractive, but the real attraction here is the story told by the building in the context of the rise and fall of this style of architecture in India. This is made more clear... More
