Bibi-Ka-Maqbara at Aurangabad Maharashtra in India

During my return from Aurangabad, I came upon this monument otherwise known as the "Taj of Deccan" or the "Poor mans Taj". The monument is a replica of the world-famous Taj Mahal. It was built by Azam Shah (the son of the Mughal ruler Aurangzeb) in memory of his mother.

If you are ever around Aurangadbad, consider adding this place to your travel agenda. Here are a few more photos
