Half-Sized Taj Replica – Bibi Ka Maqbara, Aurangabad

They say imitation is best form of flattery. The ‘Mini Taj’ proves the point. Built in the late 17th CE, within less than 30 years of its original inspiration, this modest monument has often been called ‘Poor Man’s Taj.’ It was commissioned by Aurangzeb and built by one of his sons, Prince Azam Shah, in memory of his mother, the Emperor’s first wife. Though it fades in comparison to its majestic inspiration, the Bibi Ka Maqbara emanates a certain charming humility. – Incredible India !
