Aurangabad  the tourism capital of Maharashtra

At the point when the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb was the leader of the Deccan, he established this city of Aurangabad and named it ‘Aurangabad’ after himself. Aurangabad is known as ‘The City of Gates’. The city has numerous doorways and each has a Mughal ‘opening’. At one time there were a sum of 52 entryways however now there are just 13 entryways left. The biggest and most seasoned of these is the Vadkal Gate. Indeed, when Aurangzeb began remaining here to reinforce the standard in the Deccan, the entire city was walled up for security reasons. These entryways are in that divider. Presently, obviously, there is almost no left of the divider. In any case, the uniqueness of that antiquated Mughal city is as yet obvious in all pieces of the city.

Soneri Mahal

The Seneri Mahal is named after the gold-shaded plan of the Mahal. This royal residence is otherwise called “Brilliant Place”. The royal residence was once painted in full gold. In any case, in the development of time, that tone has now vanished. This two-storeyed castle was now and again utilized as a court corridor during the rule of Emperor Aurangzeb. In the event that you enter this slick royal residence, you can figure the circumstance by seeing its curve. The entrance, worked to suit the combat zone, actually appears to hold that time. This is a rectangular entryway. The curve is called Hatikhana which implies the spot of elephants. Albeit the curve is assembled like an Islamic style curve, the castle is inherent Rajput style. After entering the principle entrance, a delightful nursery and a wellspring can be seen. Albeit now there is no water in the wellspring. This antiquated chronicled royal residence has now been changed over into an exhibition hall, where different Indian ancient pieces, collectibles of regular use by the Mughals are kept. A few models and reliefs from neighborhood unearthings are additionally in plain view.

Aurangabad University

Leaving Seneri Mahal, we went to Aurangabad University. The genuine name of the college is Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University. Based on a space of ​​more than 625 sections of land at the foot of the slope, the college is essentially worked around the town of Soneri Mahal. Furthermore, on its north side is ‘Bibi-ka-maqbara’. Wonderful climate, its astounding regular magnificence. Yet, I was unable to invest a lot of energy there.

Aurangabad Cave

At that point I went to Aurangabad Cave. This cavern is an UNESCO World Heritage Site. The 10 caverns are separated into two gatherings here. The cavern and its environmental factors looked extremely delightful. There was a cool wind blowing through the slopes constantly. The whole city of Aurangabad can be seen remaining on this cavern.

The Bibi-ka-Maqbara, around 3 km from the city, is known as the ‘Little Taj Mahal’ or ‘Small scale Taj Mahal’. It could be known as the more modest Taj Mahal in light of the fact that it is designed according to the Taj Mahal. It is the burial chamber of Begum Rabia-ud-Durrani, the fourth spouse of Emperor Aurangzeb. As per the guide, the main modeler of Bibi-Ka-Maqbara is Ustad Ata Ullah.

Initially ‘Bibi Ka Makraba’ was worked by Azam Shah, the child of Emperor Aurangzeb, enlivened by the Taj Mahal in Agra. Bibi-ka-makbara looks a ton like the Taj Mahal however somewhat more modest in size. Also, the distinction with the Taj Mahal is that it isn’t made totally of marble like the Taj Mahal, the top is painted subsequent to adding some marble to the base. During the development, Azam Shah’s objective was to assemble the ‘Bibi Ka Maqbara’ past the Taj Mahal in excellence. But since of the absence of adequate depository or gifted specialists like Dada Shahjahan, the Bibi-ka-maqbara was underlying a significantly more rich condition than the Taj Mahal in excellence. Additionally, Azam Shah’s dad was not exceptionally inspired by the engineering of the Mughal sovereign Aurangzeb. Indeed, even at a beginning phase, Aurangzeb was not in the least keen on building another costly design like the Taj Mahal. What’s more, to keep this from occurring, he prohibited the transportation of stones from Rajasthan and different spots in the Mughal Empire. Nonetheless, Azam Shah was so anxious to assemble a more excellent design than the Taj Mahal as a dedication to his mom that he won the argument against his dad Aurangzeb and began the development of this Bibi-ka-maqbara.

At the point when Nizam Sikandar Jahan administered in Aurangabad and Marawada in 1803, he was so intrigued by the excellence of Bibi-ka-maqbara that he requested that the castle carry it to its capital, Hyderabad. He requested to lift the pieces of the castle individually. Be that as it may, he didn’t do as such for some obscure explanation, yet later fabricated a mosque west of the principle structure.

Skillet Chakki

Subsequent to visiting Bibi-ka-makbara I went to see Pan Chakki. At that point the evening came nearly. Container Chakki is essentially known as water tap. A major wheel is turning like a wheel day and night. The water is streaming at a decent speed. It exhibits the interaction of logical idea showed in middle age Indian design. It was intended to deliver energy through water descending from a mountain. Connected to the Dargah of Sufi holy person Baba Shah Musafir, the structure is situated in a nursery close to the Mahmud Darwazar. It has a mosque, a madrasa, a priest’s home, a bar and two huge lakes. Covered with a tent once more. Prior to the petitions, the lovers stay here and perform bathing. There is likewise the burial chamber of Baba Shah Musafir, the Sufi master of the Mughal head Aurangzeb.
