Aurangzeb's wife's tomb- do see.

Comparisons are odious- its similarity to The Taj Mahal of Agra robs this tomb of Dilras Bano of its rightful place. Built by her son, it is a major landmark, around Five kms... read more

Comparisons are odious- its similarity to The Taj Mahal of Agra robs this tomb of Dilras Bano of its rightful place. Built by her son, it is a major landmark, around Five kms. From the Aurangabad Caves. Tickets are 15₹ for Indians and 200₹ for Foreign tourists. ATA the son of Taj Mahal's chief architect had designed this and the... More

This smaller imitation of the Taj Mahal is historically a very significant monument. Whether you are interested in history or not it is worth spending time here. Whilst it is not as elaborate as the Taj it still has some beautiful carving that has been very well preserved

Please do not let my review title fool you. I liked the place and it is very interesting to see it if you have already visited the Taj so that you can make your own comparissons. The gardens around it are beatiful and so is the building itself. It does not have the full marble explendor of the Taj since... More

This monument historically is an exceptional construction during Aurangzeb's rule & probably the last major of Mughal era. This is commonly known as 'The Taj of Deccan', but should be known at its own identity. The place is located within the Auranagabad city, at a little congested area but well accessed by vehicle up to the adjacent parking lot. The... More

The structure is done pretty well, however the walls don't seem to have been cleaned or dusted in ages, which has left dark stains at many patches. Would be 4 * with better upkeep. Skippable if you have visited Taj, but nevertheless worth a visit if you got time.

This is must visit place in Aurangabad. It's a bit similar to the Taj Mahal but it has its own beauty. This place is very well maintained by the government. This place makes my recent visit to Aurangabad worth. Overall mark it as top position place to your places to visit lists Aurangabad.

Bibi Ka Muqbara, is a place built similar to The Great Taj Mahal at Agra. It is a place we must visit to see the designs carved and the Beautiful creation. We are lucky to have such a beautiful place in Aurangabad. One should definitely spend some time exploring the MINI TAJ!!

I took my American parents and children. We loved visiting, inside and out. Many people were excited to see us and asked to have selfies taken with us, but were also very kind and open to trying to communicate, and thrilled when I spoke a very tiny bit of Hindi. It's a beautiful place and hard to imagine that it... More
