4.1/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web
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.

  • its history makes us sad and as well as warns us. here the son in law of ramchandra dev harpal dev was skinned alive and hung on the gates of the fort by savage islamist khiljis.
  • The best attractive thing here is Andheri (Dark Passage) One has to experience this. Not many go in this passage but I recommend one should experience this.

  • A must visit place on the way to Ellora.. Beware of monkeys.. It takes long time and stamina to reach the top.. Good view from the top..
  • This is the fort which is famous for its security over defeat. Really one of the greatest fort & wide in area as well as highest from the ground.
