Few minutes later, guide comes inside and starts explaining stuff. He said and I quote "Do not pay me a paisa if you are not... More

This place is huge, although it is abandoned for long but with the history and story made this trip a memorable experience. Imagine how they protect the ruler from the enemy who invade them. Bring along a bottle of water and a pair of good walking shoes, listening to the story from the local guide will even make this trip... More

We stopped there on our way back from Ellora to Aurangabad and it was well worth it. Most of the people visiting are Indian Tourists which gave us a special flavor to our visit. The views are great!

While many forts of Maharashtra are now in ruins, this fort has been maintained pretty well. This fort has massive fortification and is located at the hill top. The recommended weather to visit Daulatabad fort would be monsoons to experience the beauty surrounding the fort and will also help to climb the fort at ease. Carry loads of water and... More

Not in a very good shape now but A S I is now working on it Don't miss Andheri, Matu ki kuan., and other srcurity arrangements of the fort rullers. Number of cannon are it's another attraction. To reach the top you need atleast two hours time and sufficient stamina.

Located nearly 15 km s away from the city of Aurangabad, it can be easily accessed via bus or through cab. It is situated on a hill top and gives breath taking views for the city from top. The best time to visit is just after monsoon, as the area will be plush green but some of the steps can... More
