All reviews bharat mata temple dark passage ellora caves hill top steep climb must visit if you are aurangabad city carry water history lovers guide book main entrance indian history muhammad bin conical hill narrow bridge moat enemy
300 rupees for foreigners. This Fort is a must if you go to the Ellora caves, since it is a few kilometers away, the visit is very pleasant, with its fortifications, squares, towers, minarets, etc. I was about 2 hours visiting the whole campus.
This fort is a very good archeological monument ,built by perhaps Yacavs and won by Muslims. It is very big for and need 3+ hours to completely see. However is not properly maintained by the authorities. The overall cleanliness and toilet facilities are good. Visit...More

Daulatabad is also known as Devagiri, is around 16 kilometres from Aurangabad.
Fort timings are 8am to 6pm. It takes 2-3 hours to see, especially if you want to climb up to the topmost point. There is a Ticket of Rs.25/ for Indian citizens.
It is indeed a fortress for the daulat (treasure) it was supposed to hold :-) Quite majestic and engineering marvel. Unfortunately the up keep is not good. And do not spend time with the local guides, use the public information and definitely try to see...More
We were really impressed with the fort, it's design and lay out , preparations to be ready for the enemy. The big moat around the fort is really scary. The spiral steps to fort was a big trap for the enemy.
Though the passage is...More
Daulatabad fort is worth a visit, and visit the Bibi Ka Maqbara as well. You may also wish to see the Aurangabad Caves, which may seem not so interesting after visiting Ellora and Ajanta Caves. Another place is the Tomb of... More
Daulatabad fort is worth a visit, and visit the Bibi Ka Maqbara as well. You may also wish to see the Aurangabad Caves, which may seem not so interesting after visiting Ellora and Ajanta Caves. Another place is the Tomb of Emperor Aurangzeb, very less traveled site, but gives you the chill looking at the plight of the place: from extreme grandeur of the Mughals to utter susterity and poverty; riches to rags in reality.
The distance from Aurangabad is around 15-20 kms. Would take around 3 hours to have a good look. We went up to the canon point only. There is also more to explore via steep ascent for those who want to explore more but that... More
The distance from Aurangabad is around 15-20 kms. Would take around 3 hours to have a good look. We went up to the canon point only. There is also more to explore via steep ascent for those who want to explore more but that we didn't do it and it could take another 2-3 hours more
