Just 15 km from the northwest of Aurangabad lies the region of Daulatabad. The place roughly translated as ‘Abode of wealth’ was given to it by Muhammad-bin-Tughluq In 1327 AD. Chand Minar is one of the most frequented creations of those times. Built in 1435 by Ala-ud-din Bahmani, long after tugluq announced the place as capital, the place with its stunning minarets and Turkish style architecture became a prominent example of Islamic art in the state. The building is not only beautiful, it large and accommodating as well. It is 30 meters high and has two stories creating a space for around 24 chambers. In the base, you will find a small mosque covered in blue tiles, just like the rest of the minarets. Walk around and check out the amazing items still standing in the building. There is a bastion with cannon, gates studded with gems and drawbridge, a garden and what not! Historians and people with keen interest in art and history can come here and enjoy some time experiencing it all.
