During our trip to India in October 2010, I booked four nights in a hotel not far from Aurangabad. On the day we visited the Bibi Ka Maqbara, we had already spent a long day out at the fabulous ancient cave temples at Ellora and the mausoleum was our last tourist site of the day. It has a clever layout in as much as you can see absolutely nothing from the outside and you'll have no opportunity to sneak a few pictures from a distance and save your money. We parked up outside, arranged where we'd meet the driver later, bought our tickets (from memory, something like 100 rupees – less than £1.50) and headed inside.The Bibi Ka Maqbara was built in 1678 by Prince Azam Shah in honour of his late...Read More
