Cave 16, in particular, features the largest single monolithic rock excavation in the world, the Kailasha temple, a chariot shaped monument dedicated to Shiva.

    4. Daulatabad Fort :
    Daulatabad, also known as Devagiri, is a 14th-century fort city in Maharashtra state of India, about 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) northwest of Aurangabad.

Red rocks are mainly used for the construction of the temple, which consists of a remarkable five-tier shikara. Inside the temple is a beautiful display of carving-work of other gods and goddesses.

    6. Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Museum :
    One of the main tourist attractions in Aurangabad, Chhatrapati Shivaji Museum is located near Nehru Bal Udyan and as the name suggests it is dedicated to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, the great Maratha ruler. War weapons and other antique items of the former rulers of Maratha Empire are put here for public viewing.

    7. Pitalkhora Caves :
    The Pitalkhora Caves, in the Satamala range of the Western Ghats of Maharashtra, India, are an ancient Buddhistsite consisting of 14 rock-cut cave monuments which date back to the third century BCE, making them one of the earliest examples of rock-cut architecture in India. Located about 40 kilometers from Ellora, the site is reached by a steep climb down a flight of concrete stairs, past a waterfall next to the caves.

    Khuldabad is a small town located in the Aurangabad district of Maharashtra. It is situated 13 km away from the main city of Aurangabad and 3 km from the world heritage site of Ellora caves.

    9. Jayakwadi Dam :

The water is mainly used to irrigate agricultural land in the drought-prone Marathwada region of the state. It also provides water for drinking and industrial usage to nearby towns and villages and to the municipalities and industrial areas of Aurangabad and Jalna district. The surrounding area of the dam has a garden and a bird sanctuary.

    10. Panchakki :
    Hazrat Baba Shah Musafir built Panchakki, a water mill, in 1734. Situated in the vibrant city of Aurangabad, Nehar-e-Panchakki was used to grind grains for the pilgrims. It is essentially a grinding mill that works on water mechanism. The entire structure of Panchakki primarily consists of a court, a madrasa, the house of a minister, a mosque, houses dedicated to females and a sarai. This is a very popular and frequently visited spot in Aurangabad.
