Daulatabad Fort India - The City of FortuneDaulatabad, earlier known as Devagiri, is situated at a distance of 13km from Aurangabad. Also termed as the city of fortune, it houses a stupendous 12th century fortress well placed atop a charming hill. This is an interesting Fort, it stands on a conical hill, about 200 meters high.
