Bibi Ka Maqbara is situated about 5 kms from the Aurangabad city of maharashtra, the burial place of Aurangzeb’s wife, Rabia-ud-Daurani. Aurangzeb’s son built this monument in 1679 AD in memory of his mother. It is an imitation of the Taj Mahal at Agra.
Entry to the mausoleum is through a main entrance gate on its south, which has foliage designs on brass plate on wood covering from the exterior.
After passing through the entrance a small tank is provided and a low profile screen wall leads to the main structure. The screened pathway has a series of fountains at its centre. The mausoleum is built on a high square platform with four minarets at the corners. The main body is square (Taj is Octagonal) with a marble dome over it.
The artwork on the walls and dome is quite intricate and the lattice windows on all sides are a marvel to look at.
The mortal remains of the Queen Rabia-ud-Daurani are at the basement level which is out of reach for tourists but can be viewed from the ground level through an opening.
