It's a huge fort and a must visit. Canons at the entrance add charm to the place. Need to climb lot of stairs to reach top. The climb definitely worth as the view from the top is beautiful.

The fort is located on top of the hill. It was built in 14th century. Chand Minar, Chini Mahal and Baradari are must see structures inside the fort.

What's good Everything. The fort was designed with elaborate planning to create 7 layers of defenses. You can witness them one by one as you move up which in itself is a proper trek. What's not good Commute from Aurangabad to Daulatabad needs quick thinking...More

Daulatabad fort is worth a visit, and visit the Bibi Ka Maqbara as well. You may also wish to see the Aurangabad Caves, which may seem not so interesting after visiting Ellora and Ajanta Caves. Another place is the Tomb of... More
