Bidri Art
Bidriware is a metal handicraft from Bidar developed in the 14th century C.E. during the rule of the Bahamani Sultans. The term 'Bidriware' originates from Bidar, which is still the chief centre for the manufacture of the unique metalware. Bidriware is an important export handicraft of India and is prized as a symbol of wealth. The metal used is a blackened alloy of zinc and copper inlaid with thin sheets of pure silver. The origin of Bidriware is usually attributed to the Bahamani sultans who ruled Bidar in the 14th–15th centuries. Bidriware originated in ancient Persia. It was brought to India by the followers of Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti.

Aurangabad Caves
The Aurangabad caves are twelve artificial rock-cut Buddhist shrines located on a hill running roughly east to west, nearly 2 km north from Bibi Ka Maqbara in Aurangabad, Maharashtra. The first reference to the Aurangabad Caves is in the great chaitya of Kanheri Caves. The Aurangabad Caves were dug out of comparatively soft basalt rock during the 6th and 7th century.

Bibi Ka Makbara
The Bibi Ka Maqbara (English:"Tomb of the Lady") is a maqbara located in Aurangabad, Maharashtra, India. It was built by Azam Shah, son of Aurangzeb, in 1678 in memory of his mother, Dilras Banu Begum (posthumously known as Rabia-ud-Daurani). It bears a striking resemblance to the famous Taj Mahal, the mausoleum of his grandmother, Mumtaz Mahal. The comparison to the Taj Mahal has often obscured its very own considerable charm. Due to the strong resemblance, it is also called the Dakkhani Taj (Taj of the Deccan). The Bibi Ka Maqbara is the principal monument of Aurangabad and its historic city.

Paithani Sari
Paithani is a variety of sari, named after the Paithan town in Aurangabad where they are woven by hand. Made from very fine silk, it is considered as one of the richest saris in India. Paithani is characterised by borders of an oblique square design, and a pallu with a peacock design. Among other varieties, single colored and kaleidoscope-colored designs are also popular. A pattan (Paithani) is a gold and silk sari. Paithani evolved from a cotton base to a silk base. Silk was used in weft designs and in the borders, whereas cotton was used in the body of the fabric. There was a time when silk was imported from China. Now Yeola and Paithan buy silk from Bangalore.
