Alamgir Dargah

Alamgir Dargah is a holy shrine for the Deccan Muslims which is only three km from 123415Ellora caves. It is situated in a walled town, Khuldabad, described as the Heavenly Abode, 30 km from Aurangabad. The last Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb, who died in 1707, lies buried there. According to his instruction, the tomb was built with the money that he earned by copying the Quran, the holy book of the Muslims. The Dargah holds a robe which is believed to have been worn by Prophet Mohammed. The robe is taken out once in a year, on the 12th day of the Islamic month Rabi-ul-Awwal, for the devotees to pay their homage.

The nearest airport and railway station from Khuldabad are at Aurangabad. The city is also well connected by roads.
