Bibi Ka Maqbara, Aurangabad

3.6
Often compared to the Taj Majal, Bibi Ka Maqbara was constructed by Azam Shah in memory of his mother. Stroll through the formal garden with pillared pavilions located at the center of northern, eastern, and western sections of the enclosure wall. The entire estate may lack in maintenance, but unlike the real Taj, it offers a more relaxed atmosphere and remains a fine example of 17th-century Mughal architecture.

  • A wonderful place to spend your evening at. This place is huge and a great place to have a picnic at. The tomb is really gorgeous and sunsets looks truly amazing here. You can reach this place with the help of an auto that would cost your 30-40 rupees if sharing else it would cost you 50 rupees from the highway. The ticket costs 15 rupees for Indians and 25 rupees for video recording. It is usually crowded during evenings and weekends so better to go at some other time.
  • A historical monument, a good place to spend time at, by yourself or with family & friends. Do visit the gardens, because that's where you can lie down and marvel at the surroundings. Even though the visiting hours stretch to 10 PM, I'd advise you to visit it before evening due to visibility and safety & security reasons. All in all, a good place to spend your time.
  • Very beautiful. It has a lovely history attached to it. This masterpiece has everything to become more popular than it is at the moment. Sadly the maintenance is not up to mark. The very approach to this place is a big turn off and the parking space is stinky, dusty and horribly managed. A proper management can do wonders to this place for sure.
  • Must see. Well maintained. Hope the authorities also allow access to the vast open gardens/grounds around the precincts. The tourism board should provide more clean toilets with water for the large number of visitors, thronging this place.
  • Nice place to visit. Not well maintained. Could have been beautifully decorated with flowers and water fountains Worth going once though
