Bibi ka maqbara is located at Aurangabad, Maharashtra, India. It is one of the Historical Places of India. In 1678, Azam Shah who was son of Aurangzeb had built this historical building in memory of his mother Dilras Banu Begum. If we talk about architecture then it is very similar to one of the 7 wonders of the World The Taj Mahal. Very often Bibi Ka Maqbara is compared with Taj Mahal and hence it is also named as Dakkhani Taj(Taj of Deccan).
