Underrated Tourism Hub
Aurangabad is an industrial city with a strong economy and many world renowned wonders. It should be as famous as Agra but poor accessibility has restricted its fame from reaching all corners of the globe. Like the Devagiri Fort, this city has great potential to move people.
The caves and temples at Ajanta and Ellora are divine. The Kailash temple can match the Taj Mahal any day. I personally consider it superior to the Taj Mahal in many ways. It, for one, unlike the latter, is a true product of the unbroken chain of civilization known presently as India.
Unlike the faux Taj Mahal, ‘Bibi Ka Maqbara’, which is a very poor imitation of the original, the Panchakki is a more original work, which highlights both architectural ingenuity and the far reaching renown of Aurangabad which brought its patron saint all the way from Russia.
