“Truly Poooor Man's Taj”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2012

This place in shambles with plaster peeling off at many places. Calling it Taj would be a crime. The place is worth a visit though especially during early evenings/mornings.

“Little Taj is very pretty.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2012

For those who have not been to the Taj Mahal in Agra, this is a good appetizer. Although it was on a smaller scale, the atmosphere was calm and regal. The surrounding gardens were a bit sparse, but perhaps it was winter. Despite that, the locals were relaxing and picnicking in the gardens.

“Good Monument . . . .”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2012

I visited Aurangabad two weeks ago where I had got chance to visit Bibi Ka Maqbara.
I had heard about it that it is like Taj Mahal. As I have seen Taj Mahal 3 times already in my life, I was not expecting it to be beautiful that Taj.
But, good one to see at least once in life.

Government needs to take more efforts to this one in good shape.

“Maqbara”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2012

The entry fee is almost negligible for Indians. Rs 5/- a person. The place needs lot of maintenance. It is great place to visit and you will feel like having gone to Taj Mahal. Brilliantly done. It is not as crowded as Taj Mahal. One can spend a lot of time inside the place.
