Tourism Potential in Aurangabad: With Ajanta Ellora and Daulatabad

Dulari Gupte Qureshi (Author)
Synopsis The book ‘Tourism Potential in Aurangabad’ is all about the story of the city which explores it’s genesis right from its birth throes, sauntering through its rapid growth to its near developed prominence. The book unearths its early history and its multifaceted touristic value. The contribution of historical personalities has been elucidated and their significance expounded. This book for the first time discloses Aurangabad in its diversity of tourism potential which is not merely the historical sites but also its culture of textiles, folk dances, folk music, handicrafts cuisine, museums and art galleries. Besides its pilgrimage centers, the city has also flourished into an important business and industrial city compounded with adventurists and naturalists, who have augmented and elevated Aurangabad Eco-tourism and Adventure tourism. Aurangabad has successfully evolved all the related tourism services and developed its infrastructure like accommodation, transportation and tourism related Govt. bodies. The book traces the history of each of these services and its present condition. The book has further attempted to investigate the problem areas which are responsible in checking Aurangabad’s tourism growth despite its valuable treasures. The book also offers suggestions, if actually implemented, could be responsible for a quick growth and progress of Aurangabad’s tourism industry and bring in the much needed foreign currency and also increases employment for educated local population.
