On the way back from Ellora we got off our share auto at Daulatabad fort.The fort is a place of extraordinary strength. The only means of access to the summit is by a narrow bridge, with passage for not more than two people, and a long gallery, excavated in the rock, which has for the most part a very gradual upward slope.We were told it was one of the impregnable forts in the country, with even numerous false routes, doors and mazes which opened out to a cliff on the other side of the hill. It even had three levels all of strategic importance and you can imagine the defense mechanism and the difficulty the invaders would have faced while trying to break into this fort.
We hurried towards Daulatabad fort and this again is must see place. Fort is huge with complex walk ways and the climb up is tricky and demands a lot of energy. We chose to go till midway and enjoyed the sunset view from the fort.
