A residential quarter-like structure was found while debris removal work was underway in the peripheral area of Bibi Ka Maqbara in Maharashtra's Aurangabad, an Archeological Survey of India official said on Friday.

Bibi ka Maqbara, also known as Taj of the Deccan, was built by the Mughals in the 17th century and is a prime tourist attraction of the region.

"Last year, work of debris removal was undertaken in the south west area of the monument. We found a residential quarter-like structure, which also had a toilet. This structure is contemporary to Bibi ka Maqbara," he said.

 Work in the area will be completed soon and it can be opened for public soon, the official added.
