Photographer's Note

Bibi Ka Maqbara is a famous architecture built by Prince Azam Shah, son of Emperor Aurangzeb,the great Mughal Emperor, in the late 17th century as a loving tribute to his mother, Rabia Durrani. The monument's name translates literally to 'Tomb of the Lady', but has earned the nickname 'poor man’s Taj' because it was made to rival the Taj Mahal. It is situated in Aurangabad, Maharashtra.
The tomb in itself represents the transition from the ostentatious architecture of Akbar and Shah Jahan to the simple architecture of the later Mughals. The comparison to the Taj Mahal has resulted in a general ignorance of the monument. This Monument is also called as Dakkhani Taj.
