Daulatabad Fort, Daulatabad

#3 of 21 in Historic Sites in Aurangabad District
Must see · Ruin · Military Facility
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.

  • Well maintained structure. Be sure to check out the hidden passage entry to the fort. Local guides inside the fort will assist at a nominal fee. No fixed charges for the guides inside the fort. Ample parking near the fort. Lots of food and beverage stalls near the main entry gate.
  • Beautiful historical place. Staff were very nice. But car parking outside ford was like dump area. First impressions make you feel not to visit. But once you are in the ford it's clean place.
