Well maintained, one of the best examples of forts in India and you better understand what an impregnable fortress really means. Although it was captured by the Mughals, the design to protect against attack is pretty stunning for it's time. One a natural rock hill, with double-moats and narrow passages would have made attack nearly impossible. If not squeamish about... More

fort is beautiful. you will need one entire day. ellora caves and maismal hill station is nearby. Fun place to be. The climb can be steep at times. So heart patients and old must refrain. The cannon on the top is mesmerising. Local fruit of red guava is very famous.

The fort has some well-preserved sections and the main attraction is the bhool-bhulayan here (dark staircase leading up). I personally thought it was ok had I missed this spot since it is a lot of walking for not very interesting stuff that I have seen elsewhere in other forts.

This fort has multiple moats and levels of walls with guard towers armed with cannons. There's a bit of a climb to reach the top but the view is worth it. There is also a Minar and other minor attractions in the complex. One distinctive attraction is the winding maze of a tunnel that leads to the top aptly named... More

Close to Aurangabad on the Ellora route, the Daulatabad Fort was famous as never conquered. But the Fort outer walls are on bad shape with plants grown all over the place.

This has to be one the best fort I have ever seen, A guide is good to get an understanding of how it operated in its day. There are so many interesting facts. To reach the very top requires walking up 450 stairs it is a nice walk and well worth the view once you are there.

Later we got to know that MSRTC also provide Aurangabad day trip in AC bus for Rs 251 per pax. One can take reservation from Aurangabad bus stand (CBS) for the same. This fort is said to to... More
