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

Another Best Fort I've ever Visited. One thing you need to keep in Mind that, Keep a good 4-5 ltrs water, as the water is not available once you enter the gate. However their is a Ganpati Temple, and you can find Clean Water their. Requesting all, not to Touch or step on Canons, Its our own history. Beautiful view... More

Besides, Ajantha and Ellora caves, Daulatabad Fort is an important landmark to visit when in Aurangabad. Located a few kms away on the outskirts of Aurangabad, it is quite well preserved fort. The major attraction at the fort is the towering Chand Minar almost 65 meters high. The fort is also known as Devagiri. The architecture of defensive walls is... More

During our visit at Aurangabad for family wedding last year, we did visited few attractions in the city. Daulatabd fort which is well maintained and nicely created structure from history. many steps to climb and do it before sun reaches over the head. Else just get photos from downside of Minar and spent time in garden

all of it was good, except the heat - which needs lots of water and ORS packs and some good hat. carry less as you have to walk a lot in sun. do not carry any luggage while climbing and go early in morning as it gets very hot during day time..

Yes Daulatabadh is indeed one of the best maintained forts in India. The fort is imposing with a long walk from the main door to the inner sanctums. Inside there are many pathways, hidden tunnels, a moat, and many other secret places which will delight any explorer. One of the tunnels we went in was pitch dark and we had... More

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
