Moon over Bibi Ka Maqbara

Around sunset is the best time to visit Bibi ka Maqbara. The colours and the crowd are at their vivid best. Considered the Taj of Dakkhan, this relatively humble monument was built by Azam Shah (Aurangzeb’s son) in memory of his mother between 1651 and 1661 A.D.  The mausoleum draws its inspiration from the world famous Taj Mahal of Agra.
