Trip Planner: Asia / India / Maharashtra / Aurangabad District / Aurangabad / Bibi Ka Maqbara
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. Plan to visit Bibi Ka Maqbara and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Aurangabad attractions using our Aurangabad planning site.

Bibi Ka Maqbara reviews
The place is called mini Taj Mahal. Marble is used sparingly here. Do not advise guide service here as there is nothing much to explain. The guide charged INR 300/- for about 5 mins talk, total rip..... more

Marvellous piece of Architecture. In India there many places with great architecture. This monument is worth visiting. Early morning is best time to visit less crowded and peaceful. And its surrounding is very beautiful because many trees are there which is adds natures freshness. It is very amazing place in once your life please visit there.
The best time to visit here is after sunset. Because after sunset Bibi ka Maqbara gives a marvelous view as you can see in the images. It was a good experience to visit a historical monument. In day time it looks beautiful but not as good as it looks at night. Entry closes ends at 9pm. Good big paid parking available nearby. Reasonable Entry Fees of Rs.25 and if you are carrying a digital camera then additional Rs.25 for the camera. Mobile shooting is allowed and it's free. Shooting is not allowed inside where the Tomb of Bibi is placed. Nice pleasant place but needs to be maintained regularly. Visit it but don't make it dirty by throwing waste here and there. Use dustbin placed there.
Amazing architecture and a heritage situated so close to City. Dedicated massive parking space is available which is a plus point. Some restoration work is going on but it would need some more attention from administration to keep the place maintained. Sadly we have our lovers who for unknown reason loves to carve their names in these walls wishing it would keep relationship long :(
This place has its history, but i don't think archeological survey of India paying attention to this historical site. Water for fountain is not clean. This is a very good place to visit but the government must take care of this site.
Good historical place to visit in Aurangabad. Well maintained and it is neat and clean. Book ticket online it will be cheaper than physical ticket. Also there is enough space for car parking and it will cost ₹30 per car. There is not that much of crowd and we complete the tour in 20 min.
