Aurangabad tours

Explore Aurangabad

Aurangzeb's favourite city!

Founded in 1610, Aurangabad was relatively calm during India’s tumultuous medieval history. The only exception to this rule was when Muhammad Bin Tughlaq (know for this personal eccentricities and military acumen) decided to move his capital to Aurangabad from Delhi. However, when drought stuck Aurangabad, Tughlaq was forced to head back to the former capital of Delhi. However Tughlaq’s visit was not completely in vain as he did introduce the himroo silk in the region and also left his mark on Daulatabad, which is littered with crumbling ruins from that period. However, all said and done, it was last Mughal ruler, Aurangzeb who gave this city, its moment to shine and during his rule, this region prospered immensely, which is evident in the number of Mughal monuments, scattered around the city.

A great place for history and culture enthusiasts, here are a few things you can do, while in this city.

Explore Ajanta and Ellora caves: A UNESCO World Heritage site, the Ajanta and Ellora caves are the star attraction of Aurangabad. Know for its exquisite sculptures and wall paintings, these caves were excavated from the rocky mountainside. Carved from top down to the front, only with hammers and chisels, these temples are truly awe-inspiring. The most popular caves are numbers 5,10,15,16,21,29, and 32, and each have something unique to offer. It is best to spend three days exploring the caves properly or at the very least, at least one day to capture only a part of its magnificence. There are many guides outside the caves for those who would like to hire one as well.

(Timmings: Wed-Mon 9 a.m.-6 p.m.; ₹10 for Indians, ₹250 for foreign nationals, children under 15 years enter free),

Visit Daulatabad: Once known as Devagiri, the fort city of Daulatabad became the site of one of the most fascinating — and notorious — experiments in Indian --shifting of the entire population from Delhi to the new capital, hundreds of miles away, only to make another traumatic journey back to Delhi a couple of years later!

Head to Bibi Ka Maqbara: Often referred to as the poor man’s Taj Mahal, Bibi ka Maqbara was constructed by Mughal emperor Aurangzeb for Rabia Durrani, his wife. The domed building is quite pretty, with surrounding lawns and fountains that make it even more visit worthy. It is believed that over 300 carts of marble were brought from mines near Jaipur for building this monument.
