Contrary to most people's judgement of Aurangzeb, seeing his tomb and learning about his simple ways, clearly shows that a person has many shades to themselves. A person's views ,opinions their meaning of life often change.
Aurangzeb wanted his grave to face the skies, he wanted it to be built from his own earnings which he made by stitching and selling caps and calligraphy / writing of the Qur'an.
A Thai basil ( sabja) plant had to be grown on his tomb.
It should be a simple tomb just like that of an ordinary person .
The tomb actually cost 14 rupees and few paise .
Lord Curzon, who started the archaeological survey of India, thought that such a simple grave was not befitting an emperor of hindustan, do he had decoration done.
Apart from this history, there are people who are looking after the complex, keep asking for donations. Good aspect is that they are happy with 20 rupees or even less. The place is clean and well looked after.

We had some spare time and saw a sign for this place so we asked our driver to stop. It contains several tombs and also, tucked behind a golden door, the Prophet's robe. Unfortunately, at each spot we had a different guide who would request a donation to the site as well as a tip for himself. They don't seem to get many foreign tourists I suspect. Both my

husband and I got wacked with peacock feathers as a form of blessing.

To see for oneself the man who has ruled the state with a sense of split religious beliefs and views.

Make this visit only if you are into visiting sites of historical importance. We were and therefore made the effort to go there. Aurangzeb who died in 1707 wished to be buried in an unmarked grave next to his spiritual master. The money, Rs 14, kept aside for this purpose was what he had earned from stitching caps . The marble trellis was constructed in 1920 on a suggestion from the Viceroy, Lord Curzon.

We both visited this place last year. They did not allow photography. The Mughal emperor is buried here in a very simple and grave here. He willed that he should be buried near his spiritual master.

Aurangzeb, the Mughal Emperor is buries in a simple grave in Khuldabad in Aurangabad district.
He had willed that he wanted to be buried near his spiritual master Shaikh Zaynuddin Shirazi so that he who was "steeped in sins" may hope for redemption because of his proximity to the saint.
Only 14₹ which he had earned from sewing caps was to be spent.
Later the seventh Nizam of Hyderabad got a delicate marble screen placed around it as well as a marble platform for the grave.
Though khuldabad is a city of saints with their tombs dotting the area, most tourists come to see his tomb.
Do visit the other tombs too

This is a small and rather shabby site important only because the emperor Aurangzeb was originally entombed there (he's now at Khuldabad, not far from Ellora, in a somewhat more attractive site). There's very little of interest here now.

You may be let down when you see this monument after visiting the great mughal monuments in Agra and Delhi. It's just a tomb and a small structure raised. Aurangzeb wanted to keep it town less celebrated and hence chose for a plain and simple structure. Visit the place if you have some spare time.

You can visit the tomb if you have time. It is not very well-maintained but good scene to look at (heritage).
