This place should definitely be visited with a guide otherwise you will miss the awesome story about the strategic architecture of this fortress. The building door placements, pathways and trap routes are super impressive. Making this a unique fort amongst many others in the country.

This place is near to Aurangabad city at almost 30 Km. This historical triangular fort of Daulatabad was built by first Yadav king Bhilan and won by Maratha warrior Shivaji raje bhosale. Very attractive place to visit.

Few people visit this fort. But this is one of the most impressive forts in India. It may not be architecturally beautiful like the Mughal forts but is a sturdy fort with four line of solid defenses. It is the only Indian fort that has a bhul bhuliya to confuse the intruders. Great attraction and must visit location

The Fort is a testimony of wisdom of protecting, although the one way to get into it, which was the only way to go out of it, played against the defenders. It is built on the mountain, and the gates have sharp cones of steel in the height of the elephants heads. They are steel outside, not to be burnt.... More

Good sight of heritage. It is bit of a climb to the fort. It is a good insight into history. You may like to get a guide to hear the stories.

Daulatabad Fort was once considered the most formidable fort in India. I had read online that it was only felled once, and that too thanks to an act of treason. So I had to visit the fort. From the very first layer of defense to the very top, at each step you can find why it was as strong as... More

I'm a Japanese living and travelling a lot in India. I visited this place on the way back from Ellora to Aurangabad. But, it shouldn't be underestimated. It's a hill. I took about an hour to climb up to the top. Not easy. The efforts of climbing up gives you the feeling of the history and the nice view.

Situated on top of the hill....the fort shows a lot of wonders in its structure, architecture and engineering... you have to have lots of energy to be able to climb....requires lots of walking.... but it is definitely a historical wonder on how the great Mughal Emperor built this...

I don't have words to explain about this unique fort, excellent place, have not seen such destination, unconquered fort really it means. Must take guide although it would be costly in range of Rs 1000~1200 but its worth to take guide with you. Keep few chocolates & eatables as well as water with you as during climbing you might feel... More
