Daulatabad fort is a real nice structure. Be prepared to do mild trekking to reach the top of the fort, but it is worth it. Can see the whole city from the top and the views are amazing

The Chand Minar, about 63 metres in... More

Another location in Aurangabad that is not being maintained and is in shambles. We decided to do a quick tour and left for Ajanta.

For the history buffs. Walk around the fort and enjoy a trip into the past. Not too tedious, and suitable for all ages as long as you can walk around.

Chini Mahal was a prision for royal prisioner and many of royal captive of king Aurangzeb. The place is in Daulatabad Fort and entire Fort is not in a good condition and requires major repairing. We were not impressed at all by visit.

This fort is situated at Daulatabad. On my way to Ellora I saw this fort from outside. I thought that it will be a small one and it wont take more than 30mns. But after entering the fort, I came to know that its not a small one. The fort is big. It has a good Historic value. The fort... More
