Trip Planner: Asia / India / Maharashtra / Aurangabad District / Daulatabad / Daulatabad Fort
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.

Absolutely fantastic piece of Architecture and a must visit historical landmark for everyone visiting Aurangabad. I had a wonderful time here during my recent solo motorcycle ride. I roamed around and explored the fort. There are lots of food and drink options also available just opposite the main gate. The parking facilities are also well. 100% recommended.
A magnificent structure built in 1187. You will love it. 700 steep climbing will take you to 200m height above sea level. And you will enjoy the amazing view above the Fort. Plastic Water Bottles are allowed with Security deposit and 20 rupees per bottle.
It’s an old fort made by Yadav King. It’s huge fort and boundary surrounds many kilometres, can be seen from a distance. Trek is of medium difficult takes around 1.30-2 hours to reach the top. They have taken good measures to maintain cleanliness so they mark your water bottle so you don’t throw it anywhere. Good experience
It’s was built to be an impregnable fort full of clever structural tricks. One should hire a guide to identify the specialities of the construction. The rich history of this fort is sure to enchant many. One might trek to the mountain top too. A newly opened museum inside showcases ancient sculptures from nearby. Beautiful place with monkeys. So be aware. Beautiful place specially during or after monsoon season. Less crowds during monsoon. Recommend going to the top to see the magnificent views. There is a big devi temple that should be visited in the premises. I recommend giving it time to reach the top and not do it half way
Great place to see beautiful architecture and also get a workout in. Great hike. - Parking costs 50rs - entry fee is 25 rs per person. - walk is pretty flat in the beginning - after sometime, it starts to get very steep. - we could not finish the hike as we started at 530 pm and they close at 6pm. Suggest to start earlier. Give it 1-3 hours based on your physical condition to get to the top of the fort. - very beautiful doors and construction through and through. Great place to see sunset ! - there are so many plastic bottles everywhere, especially inside the beautiful green water body surrounding the fort. I wish the authorities took effort to clean it up.
