The other marvelous place to visit in the Aurangabad district is the bibi ka maqbara. Bibi Ka Maqbara is situated about 5 km away from Aurangabad. Aurangzeb’s son, Prince Azam Shah built it in 1678 in the memory of his mother Begum Rabia Durani. This mausoleum is a replica of the famous Taj Mahal. The inscription on the walls of the tomb reveals that it cost precisely Rs. 665,283 and 7 Annas to build this monument. The tips of its pillars are made of red stone. The monument becomes so beauty when its reflection falls on the water as soon as the sun’s first rays fall on it. MTDC organizes a fair every October as the Bibi Ka Maqbara festival. It is an imitation of the Taj at Agra, termed as the poor man’s Taj Mahal. Located behind the mausoleum is a small archeological museum. This reveals the fine example of the Mughal period architecture. This is often termed as “taj of Deccan”. Tourists don’t miss to visit this marble when come to Aurangabad.
