What an amazing fort! Our guide really brought it to life with the stories of what had happened there. Our only regret is we didn't buy a guide book that the seller tried so hard to press on us. A wonderful, ancient place with amazing views of the area. My husband, who is not that keen at looking at old... 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
