Daulatabad fort

Daulatabad or “City of Prosperity”), is a 14th century fort city about 16 kilometers northwest of Aurangabad. Starting 1327, it famously remained the capital of the Tughluq dynasty, under Muhammud bin Tughluq (r. 1325-1351), who also changed its name, and forcibily moved the entire population of Delhi here, for two years, before it was abandoned due to lack to water.
This is the stately entrance after which you need to climb 750 steps to reach the fort atop the hill
