Aurangabad, the last Mughal capital

Aurangabad has a history that begins in the 5th century AD. At that time, many Buddhist monks traveled around India and created caves to spread Buddhism. These caves were mostly monasteries or temples. The most famous are Ellora Caves and Ajanta Caves. For 3 centuries, Buddhist monks settled in Aurangabad and worked on a set of 10 caves. The region was sparsely inhabited until the creation of the city of Khadki done by Malik Ambar. He decided to make this city, the administrative capital of the Nizam of Ahmednagar. He was a great warrior, he holded the Mughal army out of Deccan until his death. When the Mughals manage to enter the Deccan, Aurangzeb was appointed as viceroy. He settled in this city which had magnificent gardens. At times, the city was renamed Aurangabad in honor of Aurangzeb. Towards the end of the 17th century, Aurangzeb, who became emperor, made it his de facto capital until his death. It was the capital of the most powerful empire in Asia at that time. It is this long and rich history that we would like you to discover and know the past in person.
