Aurangabad is named after the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb; this city is well known for its rich heritage. It is a well-known destination in the state of Maharashtra. Aurangzeb was the emperor who generally disliked because of his ruthlessness, but was respected because of his vigour and skill. During his reign Aurangzeb had applied his great-grandfather Akbar’s skill for conquest: defeat one’s enemies, reconcile them and place them in imperial service.

When Aurangzeb was appointed as the viceroy of Deccan in the year 1653, he made his capital as Fatehnagar and called it as Aurangabad. Aurangabad is sometimes referred to as Khujista Bunyad by the Chroniclers of Aurangzeb's reign.
