The Problems faced by Tourists: A Study of Aurangabad City, Maharashtra

Dr. Pooja Deshmukh


Tourism industry in Maharashtra has a great potential for growth, given the availability of basic infrastructure and the variety of tourist ideas/adventures offered by various destinations. Maharashtra has a rich historical and cultural heritage, which has been under-explored by the tourism industry. The well-built basic infrastructure availability throughout the state would provide an ideal platform for fresh investments in the development of tourism and in the process of creating many direct and indirect employment opportunities to locals in tourist destinations. The historic city of Aurangabad in Marathwada, on the Deccan plateau, has many tourist attractions as well and could easily stand on its own charm. The traces of the long artistic and cultural influences that a number of dynasties have cast upon it are present everywhere in Aurangabad. The city continues to attract tourists from all over the world who come to discover and old world carved in stone. Despite the efforts made by various agencies, problems are faced by foreign and domestic tourists at tourist places. In this project we have studied the increase in tourists to various monuments, identified such problems and provided the solutions. This will help in the creating the business opportunities’ in city and to prove the worthiness of our “Incredible India”.
