The 3 capitals: a day to discover the history of India
Even if the history of the region begins very early, especially with the empire of Satvahana and their capital Paithan, the 15th century past got conflicted with the history of India.
The Daultabad fort originally known as Devgiri, capital of the Yadava Empire, was invaded by the Delhi sultans. Muhammad bin Tulguq was so impressed by the fort, so he decided to transfer his capital from Delhi to Daultabad. He brought the Sufi saints along with him who were in Delhi. They decided to settle nearby in a village which became a new Sufi capital, Khuldabad. It became the capital of Sufism in India in the 14th century.
In the 17th century, it was the Mughal Empire that made the region the center of India. Aurangzeb made Aurangabad his empire’s capital. It was then the most powerful in Asia and represented 25% of world GDP.
It is this rich history that we invite you to discover during this day.
