Options :
  1. Aurangzeb's wife
  2. Mumtaz Mahal
  3. Nurjahan
  4. Humayun's sister

Answer and Explanation :-

Answer: Option 1


Biwi Ka Maqbara is a maqbara (Arabic word meaning grave) or tomb located in Aurangabad, Maharashtra, India. It was commissioned by the sixth Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb in the late 17th century in the memory of his first wife, Dilras Banu Begum (posthumously known as Rabia-ud-Daurani). It bears a striking resemblance to the famous Taj Mahal, the mausoleum of his mother, Mumtaz Mahal. Aurangzeb was not very interested in architecture, though he had built the small, but elegant, Pearl Mosque at Delhi. The Biwi Ka Maqbara was the largest structure that he had to his credit.
