The tomb is worth a visit if you're interested in history. The place itself is fairly simple - the tomb and a Dargah beside it. It should take you less than half an hour to go around the place. Entry is free but the guide at the tomb will launch into an explanation on his own and then expect payment. The Dargah is similar - the caretaker expected to be paid for an explanation when he hadn't been asked for one.

This place is situated about 30 kms from Central Bus stand, Aurangabad. Buses run from central bus stand,Aurangabad to Khuladabad every 30-40 minutes.Also one can catch share autos from railway station Aurangabad to khuladabad which costs Rs 50 per person but i am not sure of the frequency of such share autos.From ellora caves this place is about 5 kms We took an Auto from Bhadra Maruti temple to this tomb which costed us Rs 50. Entry to this tomb is free.This tomb is nothing spectacular to speak about, its a very simple tomb to few people including Mughal emperor Aurangzeb.The time consumed will not be more than 15 minutes at this place. When we enter the place where Aurangzeb is laid to rest a person who seems to be caretaker will explain shortly about the death and how Aurangzeb was buried at the place and then will ask us for a small amount for himself. The same applies at places where we can find tomb where a caretaker of that tomb will explain and expects us to give him a small amount.to him. Can be clubbed together with Ellora cave visit. we got a share auto from front of this tomb to Baba petrol pump, Aurangabad which costed us Rs 50 per person

Had visited this historic simple tomb in Khuldabad a long back ago. It is located 24 kms from Aurangabad. This tomb is the grave of the last Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb. It lies inside the dargah of a Muslim saint, Sheikh Zainuddin. It is an open air tomb with a domed portico, open ceiling and screens of marble with Jali work. The marble encasing and flooring was built by Lord Curzon. In one corner, there is a large piece of marble with inscriptions that contain Aurangzeb's full name with title. One has to remove footwear before entering the tomb. There is a man who explains briefly about its history. Also, one can donate some money in the donation box. However, there are other tombs as well. Also, there are small stalls selling ancient coins, caps, religious books etc. A code of conduct should be maintained. Avoid wearing sleeveless outfits. However, there are no foreign tourists visiting this tomb as it is not a tourist spot. There are local tourists visiting this tomb. However, there is a no ample parking space outside this dargah. This tomb is an ideal place for families as well as history lovers. It is a must visit and should not be missed when in Khuldabad.

The tomb marks the place where the last powerful Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb was buried. The tomb is simple covered with earth built as per Aurangzeb's wish and the surrounding marble structure was later constructed few centuries later by Lord Curzon, who was the viceroy of India. The surrounding areas has many other tombs, some belonging to Sufi saints. The place is visited by many tourists, mostly out of curiosity as there is not much else to see around. The place is situated off a narrow thoroughfare and finding a safe place to park nearby is difficult.
