Daulatabad

The famous fort of Daulatabad was once considered invincible. In the 8th century AD, this site was the capital of the Yadhava rulers of the Deccan and was known as Devagiri.

Mohammed bin Tughlaq, the Sultan of Delhi in the 14th century, was so impressed by this fort that he decided to shift his capital to this site and renamed it Daulatabad. Situated on a pyramid-shaped hill, the fort with its slippery gravel pathways, spiked gates, spiral staircases and dungeons is a sight to behold.
