The air reeks of history, a testament to the number of years seen by this thriving city in the heart of the Marathwada region. The city is an amalgamation of history and modernity living in blissful amity. The narrow streets are vibrant, awash with the sales pitch of endless numbers of hawkers, each displaying exquisite fabrics, each as beguiling as the other.

Surrounded by priceless monuments, the city provides one many opportunities to step back in time. A fusion of cultures and traditions co-exist with forward thinking lifestyles in this city, a city with a foot in the past and the other in the future.
