Visited in Aug 2017. To me the best time to visit is al least after a full month of monsoon. The lush green background will perfectly compliment the white architectural marvel. Also the cool/cloudy weather will make the trip comfortable. The location is almost inside the city, so either you can hire a car, use local transport or else use... More

This was built by Aurangazeb's son in the memory of his mother, Rabia Durrani - this is almost similar to the Agra Taj - except that it was bulit on a lower cost - it is a great visit.

The monument is a look-alike of Taj Mahal and the architecture is really stunning - one definitely wonders why is this not as popular as the world attraction Taj Mahal. It’s not built as lavish as the Taj and thus lacking the ‘finesse’ of Taj. Though being one of the most visited tourist attractions of Aurangabad, it’s unfortunate it was... More

A poor replication of taj mahal. Even the approach road is narrow and crowded. Takes a long time to reach. Not worth the visit

This is the mausoleum of Aurangzeb's wife constructed by his son. There were attempts to make the monument like Taj Mahal but Aurangzeb had sanctioned only Rs.7 lacs for it and due to short of funds, the monument couldn't be made as grand as Taj Mahal. Hence it is referred to as poor man's Taj Mahal. The monument resembles Taj... More

Unless you compare the monument with the great magnificent Taj Mahal, it is fine to visit the place. But no comparison. It's located in the heart of the city of Aurangabad.

Bibi Ka Maqbara is well made copy of Taj Mahal. Place is very much in the city of Aurangabad. As a visitor one can spend couple of hours for the monument. Those who have seen Taj may not get excited much but for those who are yet to visit Taj then it is good alternative. Place is well maintained

I am a fan of historic TV serials and found it very interesting to visit Aurangabad, specially while watching Peshwa Bajirao on Sony. This place was constructed by Aurengzeb's son in memory of his mother (Aurengzeb's wife) and is really beautiful. You can go inside and visit the grave quite closely.

Having been to the "real" Taj Mahal, I had low expectations which is probably very unfair of me. It definitely does not have the aura and mystique of the true Taj Mahal however the architecture is equally stunning. Best of all, no crowds! We were able to get photos with no tourists at all. Even the Lady Di Chair was... More
