The fort is one of the well known spota to visit in aurangabad. The fort gives you a great sight in the evenings. A good physical effort is needed to see the whole fort.

This was the last place we visited in Aurangabad, with no expectations. But it was the best place we went, and probably the best fort we saw as well. We spent a good 4-5 hours walking around and up to the top of the fort, through long passageways under the mountain, over bridges, through hoards of monkeys and even through... More

Daulatabad Fort was one of the main Forts of Emperor Aurangzeb & is located a short drive away from the main Aurangabad City. From the Car Parking area you need to walk all along & right to the top of the Fort, so wear comfortable shoes & be prepared for a long walk. The Fort is under the ASI &... More

It is a historical place. Many of the parts of the fort are destroyed. You have to climb around 750 steps to reach at the top and it will take time but u must climb. Its really a gr8 fun. The 'view' from the top is excellent.

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
