The Persian styled mausoleum was erected back in 1679 by Aurangzeb's son as a loving tribute to his mother – Rabia Durrani. The structure seems to be smaller version of the Taj Mahal at Agra.

» Aurangabad Caves
These caves, carved between the 6th and 7th centuries, lie at just a couple of kilometres from the Bibi Ka Maqbara. The patterns and the iconography of the caves speak of the Tantric cult.
