Built to rival the Taj Mahal, Bibi ka Maqbara stands as a monument to Aurangzeb’s wife Rabia-ud-Darani. The structure consists of a white, domed mausoleum and adjoining building interspersed with small recesses spanning 500 yards by 300 yards. The whole complex is in the form of a hexagon the angles ornamented with minarets. Surrounded by gardens, and approached by a pond, tree lined avenue. The monument has earned the nickname ‘the poor man’s Taj’. Poor but less crowded.
