A major hub for tourism in Maharashtra, Aurangabad has been given the title of ‘The City of Gates’ due to the presence of gateways in a large number. Aurangabad is bordered by several sites of historical significance such as the Ajanta-Ellora caves (which have been deemed UNESCO World Heritage Sites), Panchakki and Bibi Ka Maqbara. Established in the year 1610 by a Siddhi military leader Malik Ambar, the city is adjudged the Tourist Capital of Maharashtra, and is also the state’s fifth largest city. Aurangabad used to be a princely state during the British rule, until it was annexed into the Indian Union post the phase of independence. Aurangabad is easily reachable from other cities in the country via air (Aurangabad Airport), rail (Aurangabad Railway Station) and road (about 335 km east of Mumbai).
Best Time to Visit Aurangabad - The city is said to experience semiarid weather due to its positioning amidst the Deccan Traps. Without doubt, winter is the best season to visit Aurangabad when the mean temperatures drop considerably (to even single figures, at times) as opposed to humid summers.

The average mean temperature during the cooler months lie between 17°C to 25 °C. The major festivals in the city are also celebrated during the winter season when the weather is generally pleasant. June to September i.e. the monsoon season, is characterized by thunderstorms and torrential rainfall. The cloud cover during monsoons sometimes stretches for days together.
