Khuldabad is a historical city in Aurangabad district of Maharashtra. Earlier, it was referred to as "Rauzaa" meaning garden of paradise and today, it’s also fondly known as the Valley of Saints, or the Abode of Eternity. Located some 27 km from the main city, it’s a place where many sufi saints in the 14th century decided to live and die here, which gave it a unique identity.
More so, it has tombs of many saints and popular figures from history making it a top attraction for visitors. In Khuldabad, you can visit the tomb of the Mughal emperor Aurangzeb and can also visit tombs dedicated to family members and aides of the emperor. Here, the tombs of well-known Sufi saints Zar Zari Zar Baksh, Syed Shah Zain-ud-din Shirazi and Shaikh Burhan-ud-din Gharib Chisti are found.
The tomb of Aurangazeb is situated next to the one of his teacher Syed Shah Zain-ud-din Shirazi, as the emperor wised the same. The town attracts visitors all through the year but in April, it receives the maximum because it’s when the robe worn by the Prophet Mohammed is displayed to the public. Those who visit Khuldabad can also go to the world-renowned Ellora caves and Jyothir linga Grihneshwar Temple which are nearby.
