Aurangabad in Maharashtra came to limelight as the capital city of Mughal emperor, Aurangzeb. Though the glitters of the city did not last long, but one can sight some fascinating monuments, including the Bibi-qa-Maqbara, which draw a steady flow of tourists. Apart from the historic relics of the Mughal era, the place also lived through the upheaval of Buddhism and the Aurangabad Caves with glimpse of early Buddhist architecture stand as evidence. The place is a good choice for weekend excursion and a perfect base to explore the Ajanta and Ellora Caves. This World Heritage Site attracts many from far & wide. Apart from those relics, Aurangabad in present day is famous for its hand woven Paithani Silk and Himroo saris. The Paithani Weaving Centre is a must visit place for travelers interested in knowing the art and looking forward for some good deals on a India day tour to the city.
