Bibi Ka Maqbara, India

Bibi Ka Maqbara is a maqbara 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.

Unfortunately the comparison to the Taj Mahal has resulted in a general ignorance of the monument.
