Photo of the Day May 7: Dakkhani Taj - Bibi Ka Maqbara




This look alike of Taj-Mahal is situated in Aurangabad, Maharashtra. It is known as 'Bibi Ka Maqbara'. Due to its close resemblance to Taj Mahal, it is known as "Dakkhani Taj" or the Taj Mahal of Deccan. It was also built by a Mughal Emperor. It was commissioned by Aurangazeb's son Azam Shah in the memory of his mother. It was built during 1600 - 1601. 

Unlike Taj-Mahal, Bibi Ka Maqbara is not built using the expensive white marble. However  it is a lovely place to visit for those who keen on architecture. Bibi Ka Maqbara is much less crowded than Taj Mahal, and look much pristine.
