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.

  • Very peaceful if you head away from the tourists and have a sit down under one of the trees. Might be nice to bring along a book! Perhaps a little bit expensive at 200 INR for each foreign tourist. Would’ve probably been particularly nice if the water fountains were running, and the plants were taken better care of. At least the place is kept clean.
  • Once it's maintained properly... It will be great place to visit... No sharing auto available in case it matters... U can walk from central bus stand it is hardly 2.5 km
  • 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.
  • 2nd visit. And that too in full moon.. But all the lights were on after dark.. May be if lights were off the view would be more gorgeous. But still the view was amazing.
  • 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.
