During our road trip to Nagpur, we decided to halt at Aurangabad for the night. Upon discussion with the hotel owner we found out that there are some very interesting places in Aurangabad and it wont be a bad idea if we stayed there for a day. And he was correct. Due to pressing time we could not stay there for more than a day but it was a nice experience.
We went to see the fort of Daulatabad which is an astonishing creating. This fort is beautiful from the outside, although not in a conventional way. It is a huge hill carved from all sides giving it a very interesting shape. And inside the fort there are some features that are hard to find in the forts anywhere else.
After Daulatabad we went to Ellora, which I learned is a famous tourist place not only in Aurangabad but also in India. The temple of Kailasa here is a great creation and one should visit it if they have an interest in visiting ancient monuments. The way it has been designed is unbelievable and it will not be incorrect to say that more efforts have been taken on it than were on Tajmahal of Agra.
After visiting these places we were quite exhausted and returned to the hotel as we had to drive the entire day the next day. But we went out again in the night and had a wonderful dinner at a place called That Bat. The weather in Aurangabad was very pleasant and we wanted to stay a little more but we could not. But I am sure I will come here one more day to visit Ajanta and other places that I could not visit during this trip.
