Daulatabad fort- The Daulatabad Fort (Devgiri Fort) located about 15 km north-west of Aurangabad was one of the most powerful forts during the medieval period. Built in the 12th century CE by the Yadava Dynasty, it's a citadel that was never conquered by any military force. The British called it the "best fort of India", due to its extraordinary military strength. Built on a 200-meter-high conical hill, the fort was defended by moats and trenches running around the hill at its foot besides the most complex and intricate defense system. The fort has two fixed massive canons which can be pivoted. The fortifications comprise three encircling walls with bastions.
