Mumbai: The Bibi-Ka-Maqbara in Aurangabad, Maharashtra, bears striking resemblance with the world famous Taj Mahal of Agra built during Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan’s tenure.

Built in the memory of Rabia-ul-Daurani alias Dilras Banu Begum (wife of Mughal Emperor Aurangazeb), the construction of the beautiful tomb was initiated by her son Azam Shah.

It is believed that the mausoleum was constructed to challenge the beauty of the Taj Mahal. The Bibi-Ka-Maqbara may not be an identical copy of the Taj Mahal but this marble structure is a marvel in its own way and attracts visitors from across the globe.
