Mini Taj Mahal

Bibi Ka Maqbara: The "Mini Taj Mahal" Was one of those "must see places" when I was in Aurangabad in Maharashtra- India in 2010. Although many people call it the "poor man's Taj" I actually thought it was stunning in it's own right. With just a beautifully laid out gardens and intricate carvings on the building itself. Definitely not one to miss if you are there.

Info courtesy of https://www.mapsofindia.com/my-india/travel/bibi-ka-maqbara-the-taj-of-the-deccan : A beautiful mausoleum made by a son for his mother. Prince Azam Shah (son of the sixth Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb) constructed this lookalike of Taj Mahal for his mother Rabia-ul-Daurani. Because of its resemblance with the Taj Mahal of Agra, it is often referred as the ‘Taj of the Deccan’.
