Pass by Daulatabad fort, Maharashtra

Daulatabad which once was the capital of Delhi sultanate, is just another small town today. During my year end trip of 2015 to Maharashtra, drove past Daulatabad fort. It is one of the most impregnable forts in India and today daulatabad is famous for this. The fort is located on a conical hill and it has 2 to 3 layers of fortifications. I would have loved to trek to the top. However, I had a senior citizen traveling with me, so skipped the fort. It is an arid region and its winters are also very hot during day times. It is located around 16 km from Aurangabad. People visiting from Shirdi can first visit Ellora caves and then visit Daulatabad fort. Read more
