About Bibi Ka Maqbara, Aurangabad
Bibi Ka Maqbara means the Lady’s Tomb. It was built by the sixth Mughal Emperor Aurungzeb in the memory of his late wife Dilras Banu Begum who was also known as Rabia-ud-Durami. It is a smaller form replica of the beautiful Taj Mahal built by his father Shah Jahan for his beloved queen Mumtaz Mahal.
The mausoleum is built in a Charbagh style with entrances on three sides. It is built on a raised platform to be reached by a fleet of stairs. There are bastions at regular intervals and also pillars topped with lovely minarets. There are four pillars on four sides of the Bibi Ka Maqbara just like the Taj Mahal. The structure is built with white marble till the dado. Above that it is a structure of Basaltic trap. Again, above this is made with marble which is finely polished and decorated with stucco patterns. The remnants of Rabia Durani are engraved in the center of the mausoleum and surrounded by an octagonal marble screen with amazing designs. This can be reached with a flight of steps downwards. The roof of this place is a marble screen with stunning lattice work done on it. This makes the tomb viewable from the upper level. The roof of the monument is a large dome with beautiful trellis work and adjoining panels with lovely flower motifs.
