Aurangabad, one of Maharashtra’s largest cities, is a tourist destination known for its monuments and structures. Aurangabad is India’s only tourist district with two World Heritage monuments. Since the last few decades, the city has been expanding as more and more industries and businesses have settled here, resulting in a lot of development and industrial growth. It is also known for Himroo, a silk and cotton fabric grown locally in Aurangabad.
Strengthening access to India’s high-tech industry, Bengaluru, would provide tourists with increased access to destinations like Cubbon Park, Nandi Hills, Tipu Sultan’s Summer Palace, Lal Bagh Botanical Gardens, Bengaluru Palace, Ulsoor Lake, and ISKCON Temple. Moreover, Bangalore silk is known for its simplicity, purity, and texture of Silk, which is expertly produced in Karnataka’s silk farms. These farms have been around for a while and have grown tremendously with the passage of time and textile industry renovations.
