Situated about 5 kms from the city is Bibi Ka Maqbara, the burial place of Aurangzeb's 1st wife, Rabia-ud-Durrani. It is an imitation of the Taj at Agra, termed as the poor man's Taj Mahal. Located behind the mausoleum is a small archeological museum. This mausoleum is also termed as 'poor man's Taj Mahal' owing to it being a poor replica of the Taj. Behind the mausoleum is located a small archeological museum. Emperor Aurangzeb's son built this monument in 1679 AD in memory of his mother Rabia (Aurangzeb's wife).

Taj Mahal Bangladesh is a copy of the original Taj Mahal (a Mughal mausoleum located in Agra, India) located 10 miles east of the Bangladeshi capital, Dhaka in Sonargaon. Unlike the original, work on the building took only five years and reportedly cost its wealthy owner USD $58 million. Ahsanullah Moni, a wealthy Bangladeshi film-maker, has told how he built a replica of the Taj Mahal so that the poor of his nation can realise their dream of seeing neighbouring India's famed monument.
The construction of the replica raised anger in India. The Indian High Commission in Bangladesh says it will sue Ahsanullah Moni for copyright infringement of the original building; however, the original Taj Mahal is over 300 years old.Moni has claimed that he has imported marble from Italy, diamonds from Belgium, and some 160 kilograms of bronze for the dome but some people claim that it is not a complete replica and was not made with the materials claimed.
