Aurangabad

The historic city of Aurangabad

This city on the Deccan Plateau has many tourist attractions and could easily stand on its own charm were it not overshadowed by the world-famous Ajanta and Ellora caves nearby.
Founded in 1610 on the site of a village called Khirki by Malik Ambar, prime minister of Murtaza Nizam Shah II, this city was renamed Fatehpur after the Nizam’s son Fateh Khan succeeded the throne in 1626. When Prince Aurangzeb became Viceroy of the Deccan in 1653, he made the city his capital and re-christened it Aurangabad. The traces of the long artistic and cultural influences that a number of dynasties have cast upon it are present everywhere in Aurangabad. The city continues to attract tourists from all over the world who come to discover an old world carved in stone.
