    Site of no special interest
    If you have already visited Taj Mahal, Bibi Ka Maqbara is of no real interest. If you are anyhow in Aurangabad, you can pay a short visit to this monument but it cannot compete with the beauty and perfection of the "original" Taj Mahal. In any case, the site does not justify a visit to Aurangabad.

    A replica of Taj Mahal
    This is one of the famous attractions in Aurangabad. It is also known as the mini Taj Mahal as it is an exact replica of the Taj Mahal. It was built by Aurangzeb, son of Shahjahan. Like Taj Mahal, Aurangzeb built this monument in his wife's remembrance. It is nicely maintained and will look great when you visit during night time. It is open till 10:30 pm.

    Bibi ka Maqbara - aa beautiful as the Taj
    Built by Aurangazeb son for his mother the first wife of Aurangazeb. I found it even more beautiful then the Taj Mahal She was.the daughter of the shah of Iran so she must have been a beauty. She was simple and loved unlike her husband whose grave is in such a shabby state.compared to her mausoleum. It's a must see and is open till 10pm U get auto that charge a out 80 to 100inr. The entrance arch has the most beautiful colors depicting mughal art and well preserved to date. The main mausoleum has a mosque on the left believed to have been built later by the Nizam of hyd.

    Definitely mini Taj Mahal
    One of the places to see in Aurungabad. The garden tomb has such potential and is kept reasonably well but clear that there has not been as much financial investment in it like some of the other places we have been to. Lots of area to walk around but most people concentrate on seeing the entrance and walkway to the tomb. Weekends very busy. Worth visiting once at least before seeing the Taj Mahal.

    Taj Mahal of West
    This is the only example of Mughal architecture on the Deccan Plateau. It is recommended not to take any guide, as there is hardly anything where you need any explanation. The parking place is huge. From the entry gate, it is a short walk along the empty water way.Entry ticket is Rs. 20 per person; camera is Rs. 25. It's the only attractive monument in Aurangabad, so don’t skip it.

    Replica
    Replica of Taj Mahal Which you cannot Miss if you are in Aurangabad. Ample Parking is available and You need to Buy the Ticket to Enter the Premise. We went there in the Evening because we wanted to See it under the lights also Ticket counter was crowded as this was a Saturday Eve. We took a good walk and the Place looks beautiful in the Night.

    Beautiful monument, a must-visit
    It's more like the Taj than you'd expect. There are beautiful gardens on all sides - shaded and quiet. Be sure to get a view of the monument from the back. Not sure if the marble and plaster have stayed whiter or the light hits it differently - but it is even more etheral and beautiful. Prepare for it to be hot, though some part of the monument itself offers shade at all times of day.

    Complete replica of Taj Mahal
    At first glance, it looks like Taj Mahal, one should go in evening and it would be better at that time. Monument is not maintained properly still all should visit when they visit Aurangabad Garden is good We visited on 15th August when we celebrated 75 years of Independence when entry was free however ticket price is Rs 25 for Indian citizens and Rs 300 for foreign tourists. The Bibi Ka Maqbara is a tomb located in Chhatrapati Sambhaji Nagar in the Indian state of Maharashtra. It was commissioned in 1660 by the Mughal emperor Aurangzeb's son prince Azam Shah in the memory of his loving mother Dilras Banu Begum The nearest airport is in Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar, at a distance of around 10 km. Nearest railway station is in Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar which is approximately 5.5 Kms away. Bibika Makbara is 4 km from Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar and can be visited by State Transport Bus or Private Taxi. Timings are 8 am to 8 pm.

Visit this place after sun set. It's far more beautiful when the lights are switched on rather than in the daylight. Understand it's open till 8:30pm.
If you are driving to this place there is parking available nearby.

I never knew there was a second Mogol mausoleum in India. Not is big and well known as the Taj Mahal but certainly worth a visit, and a lot less crowded !
