Rabia-ud-Durrani, also known as Dilras Banu Begum, (d. 1657) was Aurangzeb's wife and queen. She was the mother of Zeb-un-Nisa, Muhammad Azam Shah and Sultan Muhammad Akbar. She was a descendant of Charlemagne through Byzantine empresses Irene of Hungary and Theodora Doukaina Vatatzaina as well as Shah Ismail I of Iran.
Bibi Ka Maqbara is a maqbara built by the Mughal Prince Azam Shah, in the late 17th century as a loving tribute to his mother, Rabia Durrani. The comparison to the Taj Mahal has resulted in a general ignorance of the monument. This monument is also called the Dakkhani Taj (Taj of the Deccan).
