Situated in the Daulatabad fort complex, this watch tower is now closed to the public after a few cases of local comitting suicide from its heights. It is hard to miss and esily visible even from afar. When you drive upto it, from some agnles it appears even taller than the fort!

If you have seen The Great Taj Mahal then their is nothing more interesting to see in Chand Minar. Centuries old heritage . Some parts are maintained well and some are under restoration.

It can be clubbed alongwith the Daulatabad fort. The minar has been closed and one cannot visit the top. However you can get a top view if you climb up the fort. This place must be visited on the way back from Ellora to Aurangabad.
