Aurangabad holidays

Named after the Mughal emperor Aurangzeb, Aurangabad is northern Maharashtra’s largest city, but is remarkably uncrowded considering its overall size and population. Aurangabad is home to several interesting sites such as the Bibi-ka-Maqbara or ‘poor-man’s Taj Mahal’, the Panchakki water mill, and its own group of Buddhist caves to the north of the city, however the highlight of any stay in Aurangabad would have to be the nearby Ajanta and Ellora caves, both of which are Unesco World Heritage listed sites.
