Description

Daulatabad Fort : It is a town which includes the Devagiri-Daulatabad fort. The place was originally named Devagiri when it was an important uplands city along caravan routes, but the intervening centuries have reduced it to a village. However it is also considered to be one of the seven wonders of Maharashtra and a developing tourist spot. The historical triangular fort of Daulatabad was built by first Yadav king Bhilan in 1187. The region was then called Devgiri or Deogiri. The fort is a place of extraordinary strength. The only means of access to the summit is by a narrow bridge, with passage for not more than two people abreast and a long gallery, excavated in the rock, which has for the most part a very gradual upward slope. The fort has its specialities like No separate exit from the fort, only one entrance/exit, No parallal gates, Spikes on the gates, The hill is shaped like a smooth tortoise back - this prevented the use of mountain lizards as climbers, because they cannot stick on it.
Bibi Ka Maqbara : It is a tomb located in Aurangabad, Maharashtra, India. It was commissioned by the sixth Mughal emperor Aurangzeb in 1660, in the memory of his first wife Dilras Banu Begum, who was born a princess of the prominent Safavid dynasty of Iran (Persia) and was the daughter of Mirza Badi-uz-Zaman Safavi who was the Viceroy of Gujarat. Aurangzeb commissioned a mausoleum at Aurangabad to act as her final resting place after her death. Dilras was buried under the posthumous title of 'Rabia-ud-Daurani'. The Bibi Ka Maqbara bears a striking resemblance to the famous Taj Mahal. Bibi Ka Maqbara was the largest structure that Aurangzeb had to his credit. In the following years, her tomb was repaired by her son, Azam Shah, under Aurangzeb's orders. Aurangzeb, himself, is buried a few kilometers away from her mausoleum in Khuldabad.
Panchhaki : It is also known as the water mill, this ingenious water mill was designed to use the energy generated by flowing water from a nearby spring to turn the large grinding stones of the flour mill. This water mill was used to grind grain for the pilgrims and disciples of saints as well as for the troops of the garrison. This monument located in Aurangabad, Maharashtra, displays the scientific thought process put in medieval Indian architecture. Most of the buildings in the dargah complex (including Panchakki) were erected by Turktaz Khan.
Aurangabad Caves : The Aurangabad caves are twelve rock-cut Buddhist shrines located on a hill running roughly east to west, close to the city of Aurangabad, Maharashtra. The Aurangabad Caves were dug out of comparatively soft basalt rock during the 6th and 7th century. The carvings at the Aurangabad Caves are notable for including Hinayana style stupa, Mahayana art work and Vajrayana goddesses. Aurangabad caves somewhat have been overshadowed by the UNESCO World Heritage monuments of Ellora and Ajanta cave temples. Though its sculptures are comparable to Ajanta and Ellora, the caves are much smaller, more decrepit and less visited. It is a protected monument under the Archaeological Survey of India.
