A whymsical emperor named Mohammad bin Tughlaq forcefully moved population from Delhi to here and due to short fall of water again changed capital to Delhi. The Fort is spread... More

The fort is a must visit for anybody visiting Aurangabad. Please do not miss to take a guide with you. The guide will share with you the history of the fort which will make you wonder about the effort that has gone to build the fort. Cary you own water and please wear your keds/ sneakers.

On the way the caves you can see a hill with some buildings on the top and a really red minar standing tall in the middle of the green valley. There is the fort. When I was approaching the fort, the minar became taller and taller. but when you face the huge entrance door, you feel tiny. Be ready and... More

The Daulatabad fort is historicallybsignificant as this is the Fort from where Tughlak ruled for a short time after shifting the capital from Delhi.. If you like hiking and climbing you will like it.Right from the entrance to the Fort, its Gates, every thing is huge. As you enter you can see the Guns and Cannons used during that period.... More

Be ready to climb stairs, pass through tunnels or... More

Nice place only if u like ruins & hiking. It doesn't look huge, but it is. Getting to the top takes about 1,5 hour. Wach out for bats at few places, monkeys and school trips on Saturdays.

The daulatabad or devgiri fort is a place which is historically very significant. You need to spend atleast 2-3 hours to leisurely visit the entire place. One good thing is that the fort opens at 6 am. So, you can visit the place early in the morning from Aurangabad before reaching Elora.
