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

Great piece of history, this 14th century fort-Devagiri (Hills of the Gods) was renamed Daulatabad by the Mughal invaders. Worth a visit- close to Aurangabad. Do not forget to buy the famous Aurangabad scarves and Paithani sarees near here.

Daulatabad Fort is 15 km from Aurangabad on the way to Ellora Caves and you can club your tour. This has been capital of Tughlaq dynasty for just 2-3 years. 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
