Bibi Ka Maqbara
 

Bibi Ka Maqbara, situated 5 km away from Aurangabad is a wonderful mausoleum built in the late 17th century by Prince Azam Shah, son of Emperor Aurangzeb, as a loving tribute to his mother Rabia-ul-Daurani alias Dilras Banu Begum. The monument resembles the Taj Mahal at Agra and hence known as the Dakkhani Taj or the Taj of the Deccan. Sprawl over an area of 1,37,00 sq. meters, the mausoleum that stands on a high square platform in the middle of the Mughal garden is an excellent example of Persian Architecture. Entrance gate is located on the southern side and there is an inscription indicating that the tomb was designed by the architect, Ata-ullah and constructed by the engineer, Hanspat Rai. There is a mosque on the west side and an archaeological museum just behind the mausoleum, which houses rare collection of artifacts and articles of personal use from the times of the Mughal era.
