Daulatabad Fort, a 14th-century fort city and one of the seven wonders of Maharashtra, carries the impressive reputation of never having been defeated in battle. Some believe Lord Shiva lives in the hills surrounding this historical attraction, which stands high on its own hill and only grants access to the summit across a narrow bridge. The lower slopes of the hill were once cut away to create steep sides and make defenses stronger, and a deep moat infested with crocodiles once surrounded the fort, but has since dried up. However, you can still explore the damp tunnels winding through the hill. Keep an eye out for monuments like the Chand Minar, a distinctive tower. A visit to the fort requires a lot of walking, so arrive early in the day for cooler weather and wear proper shoes.

  • Absolutely fantastic piece of Architecture and a must visit historical landmark for everyone visiting Aurangabad. I had a wonderful time here during my recent solo motorcycle ride. I roamed around and explored the fort. There are lots of food and drink options also available just opposite the main gate. The parking facilities are also well. 100% recommended.
  • A magnificent structure built in 1187. You will love it. 700 steep climbing will take you to 200m height above sea level. And you will enjoy the amazing view above the Fort. Plastic Water Bottles are allowed with Security deposit and 20 rupees per bottle.
