The Garden Landscape Guide

Bibi ka Maqbara Garden

The Bibi-Ka-Maqbara mausoleum was made for the wife of Aurangzeb (Shah Jehan's son). Like other Mughal tombs Rabia-ud-Durrani's tomb has a charbagh setting, with ponds, fountains, and channels. The garden is enclosed by crenellated walls with pavilions on three sides. Both garden and tomb have been compared to the Taj Mahal - and judged to the work of a less-talented designer (Atam Aula).

    Bibi Ka Maqbara known as mini Tajmahal is an excellent gardening. I become very much glad and the work done in the garden is appriciable. It was my third time visit to this region. first i was in the year 2004 second in 2008 and lately in the year 20011. A good change in gardening, simply beautiful.

    The garden of Bibi Ka Maqbara is looking very beautiful. No doubt this area of the India is facing very strong scarcity of water, still the maintain pattern of the garden is really appriseable. I have visited this monument second time since an eight year interval. well done.

    It was my second visit to India. About 8 years ago I had visited the Bibi Ka Maqbara and no I have seen a lots of changes. Specially garden has beautifully developed and maintained. A very good effort has been made by the authority. It was very good the Mango plantation done inside the monument. It will definitely increase the scenic beauty of the garden. OK well done.

    Ya it is excellent gardening in the Bibi Ka Maqbara. I have visited recently the site and it is really a marvebelous effort to creat an aesthetic garden in this highly water scarcity area. An wonderful effort done by the officials.

    It is regrettable that no money or effort is put in by the people who charge the Westerners 5 times more than locals to see these ancient monuments. There are no gardens to speak of and what few weeds grow at the Bibi are surrounded by plastic bags and other detritus. The Red Fort in Delhi, another Moghul garden of old, is similarly neglected. I have visited both these places several times and have seen little improvement despite increasing tourism.
