Bibi ka Maqbara (The Tomb of the Lady) is a 17th Century mausoleum built by Prince Azam Shah in loving memory of his mother, Rabia-ul-Daurani alias Dilras Banu Begum. Also known as Mini Taj or the Taj of the Deccan Plateau, it is the principal monument of Aurangabad city.
the main entrance, there's a small tank and a screen that leads to the main structure. As we move towards the main structure, we come across lush green lawns, flower gardens and fountains all along the pathway. The pathway is also laced with flower pots and trees. The entire stucture is made of marble and carries wonderful flower designs on its panels.
General Info:
Situated in Begumpura, at a distance of around 6.5 km from railway station and 5 km from MSRTC Central Bus Stand. Take metered auto-rickshaws and insist on a tariff card before you board.
The timings are 8 am to 6 pm
Since the site is a protected monument under Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), entrance charges of Rs. 5/- per person for Indian tourists are levied. The charges for foreigners and those from SAARC countries are much higher.
There are numerous vendors selling Bhelpuri, Ice-cream, Tea, Wada Pav, etc. outside the monument where tourists as well as locals come for a stroll.

Station is clean.
WiFi is available by RailWire. Lifts and Escalators have been operationalised.
Lodging facilities are good nearby the station. Also there are fairly good restaurants offering reasonable prices for food, just outside the station.
Places to visit in and around Aurangabad.
Bibi-ka-Maqbara-- A mausolem built for Aurangzeb's wife by her son.(12 km from Railway station)
2. Daulatabad Fort-- An archaeological site also known as Devagiri Fort, once a capital shifted by Mohd. Tughlaq.(30 km from station)
3. Ellora Caves-- a world heritage site consisting of caves and temples. It is around 38 km from Aurangabad and on the same route to Daulatabad. Hence can be covered in a single day alongwith Daulatabad. For Hindu pilgrims, Temple of Ghrishneshwara(one of the 12 jyotirlingas) is in the vicinity of Ellora caves.
4. Ajanta Caves-- Again a world heritage site consisting of cave paintings and stone carved idols. Near about 110km from aurangabad. I would advise to make a separate trip to it. Ajanta is also nearby Jalgaon Jn.
Tourist guidance centre is available on PF no 1 itself.
