Mumtaj Mahal got Tajmahal, Dilras Banu Begum (Aurangzeb’s wife) got Bibi Ka Maqbara, what am I gonna get? I asked. You’ll have to die first, he said.This majestic piece of architecture was built in 1660 and has striking similarities with Tajmahal of Agra due to which it is also called ‘Taj of Deccan’.
It is a tomb built by Emperor Aurangzeb's son in memory of his mother. It was built to resemble the Taj mahal at Agra.
Also called as "Taj of Deccan", due to its striking resemblance with the legendary Taj Mahal. Bibi ka Maqbara (Tomb of the lady) is an important monument in Aurangabad, commisioned by none other than Aurangjeb, for her most beloved wife, Dilras Banu Begum. The largest structure to his credit, Aurangjeb was himself buried few kilometers away in Khuldabad.
One monument that resembles the Taj Mahal the most in India is Bibi ka Maqbara of the Aurangabad, often called as the Taj Mahal of the Deccan and the Taj Mahal of the Poor. There are quite a lot of connections it has with the Taj Mahal as well – like the Taj Mahal it is a grave built by Aurangazeb for his first wife and the architect of this building is the son of one of Taj Mahal’s architect.
It is an replica of one of 7 wonders Taj Mahal. Built by Prince Azam Shah in memory of his Mother Rabia-ul-Durrani - Aurangazeb's Wife. It lacked charm of Taj Mahal but still attracts tourist for its replication of Taj Mahal. Best time to visit during sunrise or sunset.
