Bibi Ka Maqbara, Aurangabad

3.6
#1 of 36 in Things to do in Aurangabad
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.

    The tomb is very beautiful and has a resemblance of the Taj. The building is surrounded by large gardens and beautiful mountains.  more »

    We can say that it is a miniature replica of Taj Mahal located at Agra. Good historic monument but not maintained at par.  more »

    Historic place. Now degrading. Entry fees is 15 rs and cashier says that 5 rs change is now available so forget that. The place is good for group visits. It's little bit costly to go there by local transport.

    This place is well maintained for tourists to visit. The environment is peaceful and comforting. The tomb is one floor below the ground and some people have littered the place

    Good place to visit. We can feel like a mini tajmahal. But it is very good in even with colorful lights

    Nice to visit there with your family in good weather. Transportation facility is not frequent from main town to maqbara. Better to hire a auto.

    Good place with huge structure and a big park. However, the construction is not up to the mark and not in a good shape. Needs to be maintained properly. Not a comparison to taj mahal.
