This fort used to be one of the most impregnable forts in the early 14th century.This name was given by Muhammad-bin-Tughluq when he shifted his capital here in 1327 A.D. The fort was surrounded by moats full of crocodiles, deadly mazes and awesome defence mechanisms. One of the most important monuments here is Chand Minar, which bears a striking resemblance to the Char Minar.

This vacation,I visited the world famous Ellora caves.
As compared to Ajanta, Ellora is very famous for sculpturing rather than painting.Well known for its caves, Ellora has many Buddhist, Hindu and Jain rock-cut temples. Most of the caves are over 800 years old and therefore have a very musty and damp smell due to the hundreds of bats who live in the caves. They were built during the Rashtrakuta and Chalukya Dynasties.
Again,I truly recommend visiting this world class monument.

These vacations, I visited the world famous Ajanta caves.
The Ajanta caves in Aurangabad district of Maharashtra, India are about 30 rock-cut Buddhist cave monuments. The area was covered by jungle until accidentally rediscovered in 1819 by a British officer of the name John Smith while hunting a tiger. He saw the tenth cave and eventually found all thirty.These caves truly are a hub of imagination and handwork.
I truly recommend that you visit these wonderful works of art.

Much to the shock of everybody Brazil,the five time champions never reached the finals but lost to Germany in the semi final by the score of 7-1.This was the biggest shock of the tournament.
The finals was won by Germany who beat Argentina 1-0.

I saw excerpts of the Indian Super League recently. The pace was slow and the finishing poor. It was quite disappointing! But that said the enthusiasm surrounding the ISL is good news for the game in India.
