Photographer's Note

This is not Taj-Mahal.

This is Bibi Ka Makbara, situated at Aurangabad.

This is also a symbol of love, but unlike Taj its constructed for a Mother.

Though it has great resemblence with Taj, there are so many differences...

1)Firstly Taj was monumented for a wife but Bibi ka Makbara was created to show love towards a Mother.
2)The minar's of Taj are smaller than its central part, where as here they are taller.
3)There is a Masjid on the left side of Bibi Ka Makbara where at Taj there is no such Masjid.
4)There are two Coffins at Taj one of Mumtaj Begam and Akbar.
5)Kuran is written on the front part of Taj, here there is only Nakshikari.
6)The marble used for Taj is import from outside of India, Bibi ka Makbara was constructed from the marble bought from within India.
7)Taj is located at the riverside of Yamuna, There is no river near Bibi ka Makbara.

There are even more differences but this place is not less beautiful than one of the wonders.
