The fort is nice but not maintained properly. If you want to reach the top of the fort, then it will be quite a task. The hike is very stiff and will... More

Located on the road about half way between Ellora and Aurangabad, this massive, yet more or less derelict fort is worth a stop on your way back from the caves. It costs Rs100 to visit, but it is a sprawling, very large site, that is quite hard to navigate as the walkways are rough hewn and stairways in their original... More

Daulatabad fort is located in Daulatabad (earlier known as Devgiri) about 16 kilometers northwest of Aurangabad. Devgiri was actually the capital of India for some time in the 13-14 century This is a must visit if you are in Aurangabad.

Fascinating Daulatabad is best enjoyed with a knowledgeable guide who can explain the amazing strategy used to design this deadly, impregnable fort. Multiple false entrances, alluring paths that are killer dead ends, narrow underground passages with vents to pump in poisonous gases, smooth exit points for enemy corpses, architecture that hampers the movement of animals -- Daulatabad's design is a...

Went there with friends. We went all the way up to the top of the fort where a cannon is placed. There is a temple inside the fort premises and contrary to the popular expectations, this is a temple of Bharat Mata instead of any god/goddess. The specialty of this temple is its pillars all of which are always visible... More

Take time to visit this fort that was never captured. It is a remarkable structure and takes a bit of an effort to reach the top. There are langurs on the way so keep food items tucked away in your bags. As you walk towards the fort, you will come across a tall tower probably a watch tower. Entry there... More

This fort was considered formidable in its time. It has a history going back to the 13th century to the 18th century, with additions done to it through the ages. The fort has some of the best military strategy elements such as canons and moots, architectural elements , blended together to give way to innovative ways to defend itself. The... More

Quite a strenuous hike up the hill, but it is very much worth is as you will get to see the entire surroundings very well.

The Deogiri Daulatabad Fort is one fort where a lot of rulers ruled but never once was the fort conquered through a military operation -- as the legend goes. The fort is a lesson in military planning and conquest with its moat, dark alleys, height and cannons. And this is the reason why ruling from this fort was a dream... More
