The walk up the mountain to the top of the fort is exhilarating. Take a lot of water and try to do it on a cool day. Wear comfortable footwear if you plan to go all the way. Take a flashlight if you plan to go up via the labyrinth of intricate passages and steps cut in the rock or... More

The fort is spread over a large area however it could be possibly restored to reflect past glory. What remains is good but not great. Cannon collection & display is good. Carry a hat & sunglasses.

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!
