52 Historical Gates

One of the things that made Aurangabad stand out from several other medieval cities in India was its 52 “gates”, each of which had a local history or had individuals linked with it. Aurangabad is known as the “City of Gates”. Out of the 52, only four main and nine subordinate gates have survived, the most famous, oldest and biggest of them being the Bhadkal Gate near the Naukhanda Palace of Nizams.
