The grandeur ness and the mystical glory, the history of Aurangabad reflects all that ancient india was made of. The region got its name from the Mughal ruler, Aurangazeb. The history of Aurangabad can be dated back to the era of Buddhism. A lot of the historical facts about the place can be known from the Buddhist caves. At the very beginning a town named Khirki was established by the then prime minister of Ahmednagar, Malik Ambar. His son then named the town as Fatehpur in 1626. in the mean time Mohammad Bin Tughlaq decided to transfer the capital of his Delhi sultanate to Fatehpur, since the town was at the centre of India. However when Aurangazeb took over the region, he coined the name to Aurangabad in 1653. as a ruler he used the town as the strategic point through which he planned to destroy the power of Shivaji. But eventually Aurangabad was taken over by the Nizam of Hyderabad after the death of Aurangazeb in 1707. And he powerfully ruled it until the time when it was submerged with Maharashtra..
