Aurangabad is situated in the Ajanta Hills, 400
kms. from Mumbai and 230 kms. from Pune. It is famous for the rock-cut temples of Ajanta
History of Aurangabad goes back to 2200 years when it was known as
Rajtadak and Kirkee Fatehnager. Finally, it was named as Aurangabad. The
royal feeling of this city has not faded and can be still felt in its numerous relics and
the fort which were once an integral part of the city. The city has the same splendour of
Moghul architecture as seen in Delhi and Agra. Aurangabad was once the viceregal capital
of Emperor Aurangzeb, who wanted to control and campaign in the Deccan from here.
It is connected by air to Mumbai and Delhi; and by train to
Mumbai, Delhi and Hyderabad. The city has a cosmopolitan atmosphere and clean air.
