Aurangabad’s brush with fame might have been all too brief – when Aurangzeb made it his capital between 1653 and 1707 – but traces of its grandeur linger even today, making this city a popular weekend haunt with tourists. The fact that it’s a stone’s throw away from the Ajanta and Ellora caves only adds to the attraction.
